ACADEME BLOG

To start the fall semester on a light note . . .

The first half of this post is a list of unusual book titles collected by Russell Ash and Brian Lake for Bizarre Books (1998). It is another item that I am re-posting from Futility Closet (www.futilitycloset.com). It is re-posted with the permission of Greg Ross, who maintains the site. You can have daily updates from the site delivered to your e-mail each morning.
