Annotation Papers from a February 1999 workshop discuss unresolved issues regarding prompt emission of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). Themes are temporal properties, spectral properties, central engine and radiative mechanisms, spatial distribution, luminosity function, cosmological effects, and future missions. Specific topics include radiation from relativistic strongly magnetized outflows, quasi-thermal comptonization and GRBs, and cosmological signatures in temporal and spectral characteristics of GRBs. The volume lacks a subject index. The editors are affiliated with the Stockholm Observatory. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
