Hi Anner,

The short answer is no.  That said we are working on a publication on
hybridizing that will update a lot of World of Iris.  Another major
publication will be for the AIS Centennial.  Any volunteers?

Speaking of *The World of Irises,* has AIS any plans  to develop and
a current, comprehensive, reference  volume along this line any time

There was such a project at one time, but it was set aside because-- it
said-- there were several new books on the subject so  demand would be
low. I thought that logic flawed at the time,  but perhaps there was
more to the
story than one heard.

The books that are out there now do not come close to doing what  needs
to be
done, when they are not downright unreliable. This gets to be  a real
when one is trying to effect a little public  education.

And kindly don't mention *Basic Iris Culture* to me. That thing  is too
even for my cat.
