This month's Muse is a veritable bounty of bones. From decomposing whales (and the weird little creatures that live on them) to DIY fossilization to a slightly crazed German fossil hunter, we've got the skeletal scoop. You'll also read about the secret art of note-taking, the lost books of Austen, Shakespeare, and Homer, and--believe it or not--Kokopelli throws a pie at Urania.
