Prof professes thanks

Just received a nice email from a man I've never met, Prof. Tom Hartquist, Head of Astrophysics Group at the University of Leeds. He has just seen a PDF proof of an article he wrote for the February 2009 issue of Astronomy & Geophysics, and was impressed:
"Dear Paul,
I just wanted to let you know how grateful Ove, Meseret, and I are to you for the beautiful layout you have done for our polar mesosphere article. It is extremely striking and makes a wonderful impression. I intend to display the article in my office once it has come out.
A&G looks like a really high class publication. You do a great job, and I know that Sue [Bowler, editor] enjoys working with you."

Christmas comes early – again!

For the last few years I've had a regular summer job – working on the Waterstone's Christmas Gift Guide. This involves basic subbing of a few hundred short book reviews, plus checking details such as title, author and even ISBN number. This is an apt focus for my pedantic attention to detail. Unfortunately, thanks to our poor summer, this job hasn't felt so unseasonal this year.
