PODC list subscribers,

You might be interested in a new monograph series I'm editing:  the  
Synthesis Lectures on Distributed Computing Theory, published by  
Morgan and Claypool.
This series will publish 50- to 150-page monographs on topics  
pertaining to any aspect of distributed computing theory, including  
distributed algorithms and lower bounds, algorithm design methods,  
formal modeling and verification of distributed algorithms, concurrent  
data structures, etc.

This series is the latest addition to the Synthesis Digital Library of  
Engineering and Computer Science.  Synthesis is intended to fill the  
gap between graduate textbooks and journals, providing focused  
coverage of fast-moving areas in an approachable, pedagogical fashion.  
  Use of these books as course texts is encouraged; and the texts may  
be downloaded without restriction at licensing institutions, or after  
a one-time fee at non-licensing schools. These books can also be  
purchased in print directly from the Morgan & Claypool Bookstore, or  
from Amazon and other booksellers worldwide.
