That’s right, the annual anthology of the best science writing online is out today in pretty much every form a book can exist in, from Kindle to dead-tree. The best part? I am in it (just check out p. 139)! And so are dozens of other writers, most of whom are far better wordsmiths than myself. There’s greats like Carl Zimmer, Maggie Koerth-Baker, Ed Yong, Maryn McKenna and David Dobbs and lots of up-and-comers.
There’s science storytelling, humor, hard-hitting journalism and detailed and entertaining explainers of everything from Fukushima to facial hair.
I am a firm believer that the best science writing happening today is on the internet, hands down. This is the sixth year this collection has been published, and it may be the best yet. Of course, I can’t view that objectively since this is the first one I’ve been in. It’s writing like that in this collection that first made me want to be a science teacher to the world, that first made me sit down and start this whole bloggy business … I hope that it can do the same for someone else.
