To continue with the weirdest week in terms of emails, I have received one today that says:
Dear Dr. Baio, _ _I represent XXX (an imprint of YYY). We are looking to publish books in aviation that are scientific, academic or professional in nature.
As you work in this field, please let me know if you’d like to work on a new book related to aviation. It could be a book that you develop on your own, or an edited volume comprising invited chapters. I can provide more details after I hear from you. Would you also provide some details of your professional background? __
I find particularly amusing the final request about details of my professional background $-$ may be would be a good idea to first check on that?…
