Not in Catalogues, But Coming from Avon
Judy Quinn -- 9/8/97
With the pushed-up release (from spring to November 5) of Lee M. Silver's Remaking Eden: Cloning and Beyond in a Brave New World, Avon will offer one of the first new books on cloning that will no doubt tap into the interest generated by the announcement this past February of the cloning of a lamb named Dolly. Morrow has a planned February 1998 pub date for its eagerly awaited cloning book, Clone, by New York Times science reporter Gina Kolata. And FSG will have to wait at least a year for delivery of the cloning book it acquired, to be written by two of the Scottish scientists involved in Dolly's cloning, Ian Wilmut and Keith Campbell, with the help of Cambridge biologist and award-winning science writer Colin Tudge.
Avon has another book that hasn't made it into the catalogues: its title by Texaco whistleblower Bari-Ellen Roberts. The book is planned for spring but is being kept out of catalogues due to ongoing legal inquiry about the book by none other than -- you guessed it -- Texaco.
