Landscape Evolution Book

Elsevier has announced a May 1 predicted shipping date for my forthcoming book, Landscape Evolution, cheerfully assuming that someone will want it. Below is the mockup of the back and front covers, complete with descriptive blurb and cover art by Petr Mores. You can pre-order at

I will admit that I am not entirely comfortable with the suggested price of US $150, but that's the way it goes for specialized academic tomes with a limited market. However, the book will also be available in electronic format, and if your library gets it (although many university libraries are enduring drastic budget cuts of late), I understand you will be able to access a chapter at a time in pdf form. And you can get it cheaper if you pre-order. Once it is out, if you really want to see it and can't afford it or access it through a library, contact me and I will try to help. I would love for people to buy it, but it is much more important to me that someone reads it!
