EMAIL TO THE BLOG

Because there was once a time when I cared about such things, I will occasionally still get emails from a group that tracks academic publications.  Supposedly (meaning I have to believe these folks) when they spot my name, they send a query to make sure I am the author.

Here is an actual real life question I got today: Are you the Craig Magee who wrote  "Diachronous sub-volcanic intrusion along deep water margins: insights from the Irish Rockall Basin"?

I replied:  No, you've got me confused with the Craig Magee who wrote about diachronous sub-volcanic intrusions in SHALLOW water.  Easy mistake.  Happens all the time.
