I would recommend that you not use Feduccia, for one.
On the other wing, there is forthcoming a book edited by Chiappe and Witmer
with buttloads of interesting new discoveries and analyses of Mesozoic

Dinosaurs: Birds of the Mesozoic".
Will probably know more about the book's release date after SVP.
