theropod book update
Thought I would pass on the latest on the theropod volume ("Carnivorous
Dinosaurs") for Indiana University Press (this volume is a companion to "The
Armored Dinosaurs"). The book manuscript is done and will go out in Monday's
mail to IUP (Farlow should be pleased).
Here is the table of contents:

1.Tibiae of Small Theropod Dinosaurs from Southern England: from the Middle
Jurassic of Stonesfield near Oxford and the Lower Cretaceous of the Isle of
Wight. P. M. Galton and R. E. Molnar.
2. New Small Theropod from the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation of Wyoming.
Kenneth Carpenter, Clifford Miles and Karen Cloward.[names Tanycolagreus
3. Redescription of the small maniraptoran theropods Ornitholestes and Coelurus
from the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation of Wyoming. Kenneth Carpenter,
Clifford Miles, John H. Ostrom, and Karen Cloward.

Note that the volume is devoted primarily to the much neglected non-avian
theropods. I suspect the volume will be out in early '05. There are over 440
manuscript pages (~300 printed pages, including figures). For a few of these
authors this will be their first peer-reviewed scientific publication.
The sauropod volume ("Thunder-Lizards")is nearing completion and should be
submitted by next month, if not sooner. The last of the series, on
non-ankylosaur dinosaurs ("Horns and Beaks") is moving forwards now, having
been put on pause for about a year.
I was surprised that only one DML person took me up on my open invitation (made
about 2-3 years ago) to submit a manuscript to any of the volumes. Between me
and the reviewer, we helped this author get his/her manuscript into shape that
I doubt any of you will be able to pick it out. The author can be proud of
