My latest book, Jellyfish: A Natural History, has just been released, and is now available globally where fine books are sold. I am so very proud of it! My book launch promises to be a lovely evening of books, wine, and merriment befitting the winter solstice.
I will gladly autograph books ... try stopping me! :-)
