  • Lorelei Norvell. 1986.
    Poisonings I have Known (The Regular Column). Mushroom, The Journal 4(4): 17-23.
    CONTENTS: Victims of the annual Poison Season fall into five types: (i) The Grazers (or the Ipecac Crew); (ii) The Finicky stomach or The Morris-the-Cat Syndrome; (iii) Gargantua reigns; (iv) The Electric Mushroom Acid Test; and (v) Trouble. "Devotees of Type 1 behavior always come in cespitose clusters of two or three: the wide-eyed and apple-cheeked 18-36 month-old found clutching a bedraggled mushroom stem in the middle of a carefully manicured lawn and the hysterical parent consumed with guilt that an invading toadstool was permitted to occupy the fanatically groomed sod." Cartoons.
  • Lorelei Norvell. 1986.
    That nudum is a nuda? (The Regular Column) Mushroom, The Journal 4(3): 6-9.
    CONTENTS: A survey of the four degrees of name changes recently survived by 20 common mushrooms: (i) Genus jumpers (A. mellea returns to Armillaria from Armillariella); (ii) Species synonymies (Sparassis radicata and S. crispa are one and the same); iii) Splitter species (Amanita jacksonii is not the same as Amanita caesarea); (iv) In search of the Ancient Acceptables (Tricholoma magnivelare is valid; Armillaria ponderosa is not.)

  • Lorelei Norvell (as "Ms. Mushroom"). 1986.
    Etiquette for the morelly wanting. Malfred Ferndock's Morel Cookbook, Eds. Peter Leach, Emily Mikkelsen. Pp. 49-52.
    CONTENTS: A gentle reprint of the popular Mushroom the Journal column outlining the etiquette to be followed in pursuit of the delectable morel. "A large basket is not advised for this first trip with one's bosom companion, because that may tend to give one's host Second Thoughts."
  • Lorelei Norvell. 1986.
    Avoiding the dance of death -- a wild mushroom primer. Forest World 2(1): 40-45.
    CONTENTS: A survey of commonly encountered edible and poisonous forest mushrooms. "Despite its mycophobic beginnings (most of the founding fathers felt no good could come from a mushroom), the United States is rapidly joining the rest of the world in the forest and meadow assault." Photographs.
  • Lorelei Norvell. 1986.
    Taxonomic Quandaries (The Regular Column). Mushroom, The Journal 4(2): 32-35.
    CONTENTS: An introduction to the Friesian approach to naming genera adopted by the mythical Isherwood Phillips. "Ish applauded the chaste and obedient nature of the Lepiota, Pluteus, and Volvariella but thought dark thoughts when confronting the wanton creature that was Coprinus, who even dared to dally indiscriminately with the Nonfree Gills. Reality was harsh: physically observable distinctions were not linked up with names." (See also Projects: Agaric Taxonomy and Nomenclature)
  • Lorelei Norvell. 1986.
    Naming Them (The mushroom, the man, the name, another name, the squabble, the congress) (The Regular Column). Mushroom, The Journal 4(1): 21-23.
    CONTENTS: An introduction to the Byzantine and tortuous path a mushroom taxonomist must follow in describing and naming a new mushroom species, and the problems encountered when someone else describes the same species under a different name. "Time was when the naming of things was a simple affair. In the beginning, the beasts and plants of the world were trotted past Adam, who named each, and that was that."
