    I work (hopefully not for much longer!) for a non-profit organization dedicated to the uphill battle of teaching journalists how to write about science. I don't think the two worlds will ever quite see eye-to-eye...they want to make it readable, we want to make sure it's accurate. ("Why can't scientists speak English? Why can't journalists get it right?") My deepest heartfelt sympathies!

    Can't wait to get my copy!

    Hey Bugweed,



    Actually, you are one of the people who's citation got cut out of the book. On page 145, where I discuss a bit about growing Sarracenia psittacina, I noted that "Some clones grow best partially submerged year round or with water percolating through the soil (S. Millar, pers. communication)" but unfortunately your name got cut out along with all the other similar citations. Life is cruel....

    LOL! Harsh bugweed, real harsh.

    Congratulations on getting your book to the production stage! Now treat yourself to a couple of asprin and some rogain for all that hair you pulled out during the editing stages.
    I plan on reserving a copy on Amazon real soon. Looking forward to reading it!

    Hey Folks,

    Well, if you look at my FAQ you'll notice I've put some shots of my book on the front page. It should be coming out in September, which is fabulously cool.

    I've gone over the text with a fine-tooth comb and flagged a few minor errors (and created an erratum sheet for my web site). But it is a huge relief to stop worrying about this project. Have you ever woken up at 3 a.m., and had to turn on your computer just to make sure you were consistent in your spelling of Drosera spatulata, instead of Drosera spathulata? I have!

    In the future I'll have some information about how to get signed copies of my book (which wouldn't be via Amazon).

    Later!

    Good to hear the news Barry! I'm glad that after all your hard work your book is finally coming out, although now I'm going to have to cancel my order through Amazon...A signed copy is impossible to turn down
