How to Get Your Book Reviewed: NSS reviews fiction and nonfiction books that are related to the human exploration, development, and settlement of space. Topics include space history, space technologies, space resources, space settlement, politics of space development, and books that will inspire enthusiasm for space in adults and children.

Before sending a book, please contact Space Books Committee Chairman Marianne Dyson with a description of the book and how one of our NSS Space Books Committee members can obtain a free review copy in print (preferred) or electronic form. Books that are, in the opinion of the reviewer, not sufficiently related to space, are not historically or scientifically accurate, or fail to hold the reader’s interest will not be reviewed.

Reviews will normally be featured on the NSS website within three months and advertised in our electronic newsletter, Downlink. Two reviews per quarter will be selected for publication in Ad Astra magazine, and then archived on the website. Opinions expressed are those of the reviewers and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Space Society. If you are an NSS member and writer interested in joining the Space Books Committee, please contact Marianne Dyson.
