Temporary Suspension of Book Reviews
Due to a reorganization of the MWSA book review program, effective immediately no new books will be processed for reviews until January 15, 2016. All books currently in the system will be reviewed, though the turnaround time is going to be a little longer than normal.
I apologize for the inconvenience this will cause, but it is necessary in order to establish and work out the revised book review program to make it run smoothly. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Should you have any questions, you may contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

The William E. Mayer Prize is in honor of the late William E. Mayer who was a member of MWSA. He was the essential renaissance man - a soldier, a doctor, a statesman, an author - and a loving husband. You can learn more about Bud Mayer in the book that he and his wife Heidi wrote in the last year of his life, called Waltzing with Death.
