No, and yes. The Meme Machine by Sue Blackmore (and Richard Dawkins) will
be published in early March, but can be ordered
hard back now at Amazon.com for $25 or direct at OUP 18.99. Sue is also
doing a US and UK lecture tour (MIT, Caltech etc) based on the MM this
Spring.

For those who can't wait, an extract from, and a synopsis of, MM can be
found at our Meme Lab page

http://www.memes.org.uk/extracts/SBOct1998Ch1.html#syn

Obviously, as a member of Memelab and massively infected with Sue's ways of
doing memetics
I would not be the appropriate person to review the book in the JoM, but
perhaps Hans,
you could find somebody who would do this.

Tuesday 9 March, 7pm

Wednesday 10 March, 7pm
