The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based list of titles available only on-line. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

Them Bones: An Osteological Dozen
selected by Deborah Stevenson and Jeannette Hulick

Between the appropriateness of a spooky Halloween list and our fondness for skeletal yet perky Bulletin mascot Bob, we decided this would be a good month to feature the old organic infrastructure, that is, bones. More flexible than they might appear, bones feature prominently in folktales, fiction, ghost stories, history, forensic science, social science, and paleontology, resulting in a list that should allow just about anybody to happily bone up.
-- Deborah Stevenson, Associate Editor, and Jeannette Hulick, Graduate Assistant
