Thanks to a lovely illustrated Christmas e-card from Richard Ellis, I'm anticpating his next book:
The Great Sperm Whale: A Natural History of the Ocean's Most Magnificent and Mysterious Creature [Hardcover]
The card came, interestingly, while I was re-reading Moby Dick.
This should be a kind of bookend to Ellis' study of the giant squid. I'm definitely looking forward to this one.
