Dear members of the Paleontological Society:

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 Reviews should be submitted by May 1 for inclusion in the spring/summer issue or December 1 for inclusion in the winter 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.

If you are interested in reviewing one of these books, please contact 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.
