Dear PaleoNet members:

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 alert before submitting review.) Past Priscum book reviews can be found in past issues at Reviews should be submitted by December 1 for inclusion in the winter issue or May 1 for inclusion in the spring/summer issue.

For reviews of specialized monographs, it is requested that reviewers have expertise or experience in the taxonomic or stratigraphic group under study.

Please note that reviewers MUST BE A CURRENT MEMBER OF THE PALEONTOLOGICAL SOCIETY before beginning review. Membership can be made or renewed at (In most cases, the cost of the reviewed book is greater than membership cost.)

If you are interested in reviewing one of these books, please contact book review editor Phil Novack-Gottshall at pnovack-gottshall at<mailto:pnovack-gottshall at> (please do not reply to this listserv!) and arrangements will be made for delivery and further details on review requirements and timeline.
