Hi all,
        Since these topics came up on both the Meteorite List
And the IMCA mailing list, I am including both in my response:
        I have been working on a book on orientation for nearly
A year or so (this topic came up on the Meteorite List MUCH
more recently than when the IMCA was formed).
        I have collected hundreds of photos and the permission of
The photographers to use them, illustrating various aspects indicative
Of orientation and have put in hundreds of hours of work on this
text, already. I consider the book to be approximately 80% done but,
Have a lower work load this semester and I am now hopeful my
book on Orientation will be released this year. I am still currently
negotiating with ASU for the use of some photos from the Nininger
publication of old on ORIENTATION.
        As for a Hammers, I have been working on that book for at
Least 3 years and am still hopeful it will be released by The
Tucson Show in 2010. I coined the term, "hammer" and will go
Into it to some extent in that test. I would hope people would have
The good taste to at least wait until the book is published before
Involving themselves in serious debate as to what the term
