Greetings:

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. 
Reviewers must be a current member of the Paleontological Society before 
beginning review.
