[Apologies for cross-posting]
The following volumes are available to Paleontological Society members
in exchange for writing a review in Priscum, the PS newsletter. Reviews
should be informative and engaging and between 400-800 words long. The
tone can be informal and casual, appropriate to recommending or
critiquing a book to friendly colleagues. (Longer reviews are allowed,
but please request ahead of time.) Past Priscum book reviews can be
found at http://www.paleosoc.org/publications.html. Reviews should be
submitted by Dec. 1 2012 for inclusion in the winter issue of Priscum.
