Calling the #scienceink tribe in San Francisco and Los Angeles! I'm headed your way this week.

Today Science Ink is published! Amazon has already run out of copies to sell, but not to worry–the books are spitting out of printers as I blog this. Order your copy, and it will get to you soon. If you’re on the fence, check out this review from Nature (yes, that Nature, the venerable scientific journal): “Beautiful…packed with fascinating stories.” (It’s behind a paywall, alas…)

On Thursday, I’ll be heading off for the first of a bunch of events for the book. As part of the Bay Area Science Festival, I’ll be in San Francisco on Friday.

The first tattoo-themed stop will be Black & Blue Tattoo, on Friday from 7:15 to 8:15 pm. I’ll be showing images from the book and telling some of the stories behind them. If you’re a tattooed Bay Area scientist, please come and share your ink!

The second stop will be Booksmith, at 8:30 pm. It’s part of their Bookswap series.

(I’ll also be at a non-tattoo event as part the festival: Gut Check: The Hidden World of Microbes, on Friday at 12:30 at UC San Francisco. Details here.)

Then it’s on to Los Angeles, where I will be at Comikaze Expo, signing books on Saturday. I’ll post my precise coordinates on Twitter.

Lots more to come…

    Sorry I missed you live in s.f., but I did hear your radio interview! The story about certain fecal matter insertion
    into a dieing patient was awesome!
