As if I didn't have enough books to read this year already, this July will see the publication of Tyrannosaurus rex: The Tyrant King, a book wholly dedicated to the iconic dinosaur. It's edited by Peter Larson and Kenneth Carpenter (it's part of the Life of the Past series), and although I don't know what will be in the book I have to say that I love the cover. You can already pre-order the book, although I'm going to try my best to get a review copy to do a write-up on as we get a little closer to the summer.
I'm also looking forward to the much closer publication of Dogs: Their Fossils Relatives and Evolutionary History and Elephants and Ethics: Toward a Morality of Coexistance, copies of which I'll also try to obtain to review here (although I'm sure I'll still eventually pick them up even if I am not able to). What books are you looking forward to this year?
The book is the edited papers from the summer of 2005 centennial conference on Tyrannosaurus rex held at the Black Hills Institute. Review of the conference itself can be found at http://dml.cmnh.org/2005Jun/msg00149.html
Little did I know when I clicked the link...reading this post is going to end up costing me some significant money, thanks Brian. ;)
I am looking forward to these:
and of course those listed here:
Note on the URL I quoted: the period I put at the end of the sentence is ruining the hotlink. Just go to:
By the way, my contribution to the volume is the technical (although not TOO technical) version of my Random House Step-Into-Reading book T. rex: Hunter or Scavenger?.
I kid you not.
