Medea
Labyrinths

porp what are your favorite birds or bugs or other critters if you ever feel like sharing this information with your loyal slime fans?

Wow a very good question!

Bugs are my favorite! I like aphids, bees, tarantulas, moths, wasps, stag beetles, snails, mantises, and ants. Wasps are probably the most “fuckable” bug. I like carnivorous Eupithecia caterpillars (the ones that mimic twigs but with horrific alien mono-claws) and snowberry clearwings (hummingbird moths).

Plants are my second favorite. Algae, moss, lichen, kudzu…clinging creeping plants that swallow landscapes. Carnivorous plants are also good!

Amphibians and squishy water things are my third favorite. I like lampreys, leeches, jellyfish, anemones, gators. I appreciate stupid looking fish for getting out there and doing their best.

My favorite birds are bats and hummingbirds.

Parasites are very good too!

Congratulations for small stuff!

Yahoo! We just got the official copyright registration on the Periodic Table of Parasites and the Periodic Table of Viruses. On top of that we did the ISBN registration, so that they are “real” documents. If you want either one before they go out for sale and distribution let me know.

This was one huge pile of work!  People ask “Why did you do it?” and I usually say 1 of 3 things back. “Clearly the periodic table of elements needed to be rewritten” or “Biologists need something cool to hang on the wall” or “I’m insane.”

With around 240 wee beasties, if we post 2 a week that will keep things busy for more than 2 years. Of course I haven’t finished the Periodic Table of Microbes book yet, but it’s almost there.  I mean the Table is done, but the companion book isn’t. Oh, and I need to do the companion books to the Table of Viruses and the Table of Parasites. Yes, I think it’s insanity. But think of the challenge: “What can you say about small life forms in around 300 words that will be memorable and cool?”

The Tarantula Hawk Wasp and Kyzyl Agach virus are my current favorites. But Mad Itch, Titi Monkey, and Strawberry Crinkle are  pretty awesome too.

The ISBN for the Table of Viruses is 978-0-9961456-7-1.

The ISBN for the Table of Parasites is 978-0-9961456-8-8.
