    Glut's _New Dinosaur Dictionary_ (note the "New") appeared in 1982 
and brought things up to date for that time, more or less. Within the past 
year or so, some enterprising publisher spiffed up the cover and reissued it 
under a slightly altered title. I bit, ordered a copy, thinking it was 
brand new. When I compared the "new" version to the 1982 version, I 
found them identical, page for page, word for word. So, I returned the copy, 
accompanied by a letter of complaint, and got my money back.

    (Aside to DinoGeorge: What do you think?)
