I have just about recovered from my illness (it’s been a bad week) but the good news is that the pterosaur volume is now avilable to be ordered. Sorry, but as advertised it will have to be by post or by e-mail (no online ordering) and payment will have to be by cheque or postal order (direct transfer may be possible).
The full list of the various papers, page numbers etc. is now below, and the details below of whom to contact to order (please note these will not be shipped until the end of Jan at the earliest, they are still being printed) are here.
Fax +49-89-89329763 (inside Germany: 089-89329763)
The cost is a staggeringly low 29 Euro plus postage (which obviously varies depending on where you are located) for all 264, A4 pages of pterosaur excitment. As I have mentioned before please DO advertise this volume where you can (can soemone stick this on the DML and Vert Pal list for me?). The BSPG is a small museum that will take a hit on this volume and the more copies we sell, the less moeny they will lose, and indeed the more people will get to read this research. Even if you do not need it directly, please request your library or research group pick up a copy, they will only be available for a limited time.
