Dear colleagues,
due to your help I published a popular book about Diptera (in Russian) in 2019. Now the English edition is published. As I did in 2019, now I am going to send a copy of the book to the following members of Diptera.info:
Authors of images used in the book;
Paul Beuk – the author of used photo and the author of Diptera.info
The English editor of the book, Tony Irwin

Thank you all!
The book was published only yesterday. Phyton publisher and I need some time to organize the selling of it via international booksellers. I will inform you as soon as possible.
So far I can offer you contents of the book.

Another point. On the NHBS website, the book is marked as "expected delivery within 3-4 days". I expect NHBS to receive the books I sent to their address one week later than expected. At the post office in Moscow, I was warned that due to covid, there were difficulties and the parcel does not arrive in a week, but on average in two. It's my fault, not NHBS.

A great book for learning scientific English vocabulary, especially when bundled with the Russian version. Yes, and such an interesting topic in an accessible language, it's very cool! Thank you so much for your hard work.
