Everyone loves dinosaurs, right? But I hardly need to point out here that the fossil record of cephalopods goes way further back, and is WAY more exciting. Isn't it time for ancient cephs to enjoy their version of the 1970's dinosaur renaissance? Well, last year I managed to convince a publisher that it is indeed time, and now I'm writing a book about cephalopod evolution. I've been reading papers and interviewing scientists, and I've got heaps of material, but now I would love to hear from all you wonderful fellow ceph-lovers: What are your favorite ancient cephalopods that everyone should meet? What stories absolutely have to go into a book about cephalopod evolution? What are your most burning questions about ceph fossils and evolution? I'll be profoundly and publicly grateful for any input in the book acknowledgements (unless you don't wish to be thanked, in which case I'll keep my gratitude quiet). More book deets: the publisher is ForeEdge, the trade imprint of the University Press of New England (so even tho it's an academic press, this is a "trade book" not a textbook, meaning it's written for a general audience) and the publication date is sometime in Fall 2017.
