My edition (second) has a brief discussion of molecular drive. I've also
got, someone in nonvirtual storage, other papers on molecular drive. No
time to find them right now, though I believe they were from _Science_ and
perhaps some other technical journals. I'm sure a good search of a
periodicals book will list all of them.

Now, will anyone else read _Evolution as Entropy_!?!:)
