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 request ahead of time.) Past Priscum book reviews can be
found at in past issues of
Priscum. 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.

If you are interested in reviewing one of these books, please contact
book review editor Phil Novack-Gottshall at 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.
