Subject: Don't miss an issue of Fossil News magazine in 2017!

Dear Colleague:


This Spring, the "new" Fossil News: The Journal of Avocational Paleontology began its second year under new editorship.


Fossil News is a full-color quarterly print magazine – you can hold it in your hands and turn the pages. Each number is a collectible: visually attractive and chock full of national and international news from the world of vertebrate and invertebrate paleontology, advice for amateur and paraprofessional fossil collectors, paleoart & fossil photography, original book reviews, updates on important issues in paleontology and related fields, and much more.


We're convinced there's never been a better time for well-written, high-quality information for amateur and paraprofessional fossil enthusiasts. Here's some of what's coming up in our Spring 2017 issue (on sale now):


·        An essay by the American Museum of Natural History's Carl Mehling: What *Is* a Fossil?

·        A tour of the amazing Am Löwentor Museum in Stuttgart

·        Mike Keesey's Paleocene, a new comic

·        The Pleistocene Megafauna site in McMinnville, Oregon

·        The Geoblitz Project: A museum takes inventory to make its collections more accessible

·        Our Spring Book Focus, with reviews of new publications in paleo

·        the featured paleoartist for Spring, Stanton Fink

·        Advertise! Fossil News is a great opportunity to reach a wide audience. It's hard to imagine a more targeted group than Fossil News subscribers, and we keep our advertising rates low because it's the right way to treat our colleagues.

·        Sell! If you have a store or museum shop, Fossil News is an eye-grabbing, collectible quarterly. To help you and your customers become acquainted with Fossil News, we're making this special offer: We'll send you copies of any issue of Fossil News at our cost for you to resell. If you and your customers like them, we'll negotiate a price for subsequent issues that's fair to both of us.
