I've been asked to do a pre-publication review of an upcoming book. Sanity check, facts, that sort of thing... it's a book about Mac OS X. The publisher is offering me an honorarium of $225... plus $50 if I deliver my comments on time... or I can double the honorarium if I want to take it in books that they've published.
Too bad they don't have any science fiction. I think I have enough computer books that I'll never get around to reading. :-)
I can also do a combination of books and cash, so I'll skim their web site to see if there's anything I desperately want before making a final decision.
