Last year I couldn't participate, I was a bit ill, I hope to do so this one. Years ago, I edited a special issue of a e-magazine as a tribute to Carl Sagan, with articles of many Spanish science communicators which still ranks high in Google. By the way, I just came from a library and was surprised to see your book published in Spanish. It was weird, because is titled "Código genético" Genetic Code. Also, "The Varieties of Scientific Experience" was published here. Congratulations.

The e-tribute sounds great, and I hope you're feeling well enough to post an entry this year. Everyone I know seems to be a little under the weather these past few weeks. Many thanks for the congratulations, and yes, the books tend to get different titles when published in other languages. As a title, "Idlewild" doesn't translate so easily. I'm happy with "Código Genético" as I think it's the sort of title that would encourage me to take a closer look. Fun cover too.


Thanks, it's an honor to be included in such company.
