About meI'm a Professor of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, as well as a Professor for Physics and Astronomy, at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan.

About my libraryI collect first editions, in fiction (mostly English) and non-fiction (mostly Science), as well as Natural History books. I have a thing for hardcover books, in particular books that look the way they did when they first appeared. I hate the little stickers advertising "Winner of the Pulitzer", or "Oprah's Book Club". Let me make up my mind by myself. I just loved reading "The Old Man and the Sea" with the book the way it was before everybody else read it.

I see you've hit the news in the UK: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-23529849.
No, I just became aware of your work a decade or more ago; read your academic profile; saw you had an Erdos number and just happened to have read about him in The Man Who Loved Only Numbers. The connection stuck. Just thought you'd be amused by the cartoon, that's all.
Saw this and thought of you.
Loved your review of 'Wonderful Life'. My reaction was very similar. I see that you haven't yet catalogued 'The Crucible of Creation' by Simon Conway Morris, which is pretty much everything that Gould's work should have been. (Note that I am only talking as a layman here.) If you haven't got it, I thoroughly recommend it.

Did you know that because you are a published author, you can get your name up in lights? See the LibraryThing Author page. Your name rang a bell, because your work was much discussed on the ARN site, where I used to hang out for a laugh.
