Years ago I reviewed Richard Fortey's hilarious "Dry Store Room No. 1," in which he revealed that a colleague of his at London's Natural History Museum kept labeled samples of his girlfriends' pubic hair. It was the kind of book one could only write upon retiring, but I'll bet the museum eventually embraced it and started selling it in the gift shop. Fortey is back with "Horseshoe Crabs and Velvet Worms," which has more in common with his earlier paleontology books "Life" and "Trilobite." I liked the more muscular U.K. title "Survivors," but in any event Fortey readers will love it. My review for WSJ here.
