Native Plants Journal has a New Editor

Steven L. Love, new editor of Native Plants Journal.

Fifteen years ago, R. Kasten Dumroese became the founding editor-in-chief of the newly formed Native Plants Journal. With the Fall 2014 issue of NPJ, after building and serving the Journal well, R. Kasten Dumroese bade us farewell. In the next issue of NPJ, we will welcome our new editor, Steven L. Love, University of Idaho Aberdeen Research & Extension Center, pictured at right.

University Press of Florida official to lead UW Press


Dennis Lloyd, deputy director of the University Press of Florida, has been selected as the new director of the University of Wisconsin Press.

 

"I have been aware of the stellar reputation and cutting-edge publications of the University of Wisconsin Press for most of my career,” Lloyd says. “The ingenuity, enthusiasm, and dedication of the entire staff is impressive, and I am confident that together we will overcome the challenges that face all university presses today. I’m looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and assuming leadership of this outstanding organization later this spring."

 

Lloyd will take over from Interim Director Lea Jacobs in May, bringing with him 20 years of experience in sales, marketing, acquisitions and management at the University Press of Florida — which serves 12 of Florida’s state universities — and publishing houses at the Universities of Alabama, Kentucky and Pittsburgh. He recently chaired the Digital Committee of the Association of American University Presses.

 

The UW Press, a division of UW–Madison’s Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education, has published more than 3,000 books since 1937. It boasts more than 1,400 titles in print, and publishes 11 peer-reviewed journals in the humanities, social sciences and medicine.


 

Preview of SubStance Special Issue

"David Mitchell in the Labyrinth of Time: Review of The Bone Clocks" and Preview of an Interview with the Author

As an online preview of a special issue of SubStance devoted to David Mitchell’s fiction, we are posting a review-essay of his book by Paul Harris and an excerpt of an interview with the author. The interview will appear in the special issue in spring 2015.

 

A Review of David Mitchell’s The Bone Clocks by Paul A. Harris, Editor, SubStance

David Mitchell’s The Bone Clocks, the latest iteration of his fractal imagination, follows a central character’s life through six decades in six sections that simultaneously succeed as stand-alone stories. Protagonist Holly Sykes narrates the first and final chapters; in the middle ones, her life is seen prismatically through the lenses of others who cross her path: Cambridge student Hugo Lamb, war journalist Ed Brubeck, bad-boy author Crispin Hershey, and Horologist Marinus. Navigating this narrative proves to be a rollicking ride: the plot is a propulsive page-turner, picking up momentum as it goes; the narrative is kaleidoscopic-episodic, unfolding in a series of juxtapositions and sometimes sudden shifts; the style is protean, skipping skillfully among different rhetorical registers, allusive layers, and literary genres.
