The Queue I am not to write about dinosaurs
Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Matthew Rossi will be your host today.

I know you all just want World of Warcraft questions and answers, and so, I won't talk about dinosaurs again. I'll just get right to your questions.

Q for the Q: when will you be writing an entire book on paleontology, rather than chapters of books?

You're killing me here, Iskande. To be honest, my interest in paleontology is strictly amateur.
