We know that readers will be expectantly awaiting the Dewey blog's review of Oscar night, but we're sorry to say that our representative had a prior engagement and couldn't attend or, indeed, even watch the ceremony on telly. In fact, he has no idea what happened and would like to keep it that way until he gets a chance to see the tapes (which may be a few days away, since he claims to have approximately 63 episodes of Cash in the attic to get through first). Still -- there can't have been any big shocks, right? Meanwhile, we are able to bring you news of the weekend's other big shindig: the awarding of the Diagram Prize for Oddest Title of the Year, which was won by Gary Leon Hill's People who don't know they're dead: How they attach themselves to unsuspecting bystanders and what to do about it (Weiser Books, 2005), in a very close contest that saw this early favorite triumph over the runner-up, Simon Milledge's Rhino horn stockpile management: Minimum standards and best practices from East and Southern Africa (TRAFFIC East/Southern Africa, 2005), by just two votes. Ancient starch research (Left Coast Press, 2006), by Robin Torrence and Huw J. Barton, took bronze. People who don't know ... is classed at 133.9 Spritualism under 130 Parapsychology and occultism. The second- and third-placed titles haven't yet made it into WorldCat, but we would suggest 333.959668 (adding the numbers following 599 in 599.668 Rhinocerotidae to base number 333.959 Specific kinds of mammals, under 333.95 Biological resources) for the former and 930.1 Archaeology for the latter.
