  1. I like reading your reviews, conversations, and comments, so I was dismayed to find that SFPL does not have a copy of Brian Cohen’s new book The Life O’Reilly in the system or on order. Nor could I locate it in the link+ system.

    Perhaps the book is not yet published?

  3. Hi — I’m sorry this comes ridiculously long after you sent it. This particular book has been hard to get — but if you request that your local branch buy a copy, you may have some luck. Sorry to not be more helpful. Best, Mary Ellen

  4. Mary Ellen, I just received a copy of “Evidence of Evolution” from Amazon, and your text seems to be well worth reading, but the font contrast is just terrible (extremely low contrast), and I wonder if the text for this book is available somewhere else (separate), it seems that whoever edited the font contrast/colors, didn’t do their job…

  5. Hi — thank you for ordering Evidence of Evolution! I share your frustration with the type — as a friend commented, it’s “museumy.” I’ll never let another book of mine have type like that — in this case it never occurred to me to watch out for the intensity of the ink! When I got the galleys, I was horrified and it was too late…. That said, I can manage reading it pretty well under a strong light. Thank you so much — I hope you do find a way to read it comfortably. — Mary Ellen
