Blogger Book Explosion

This year has seen an explosion of books written by science bloggers, and it looks like the trend is going to continue well into 2010.

  • The ever-popular Carl Zimmer brought us two new gems, Microcosm and the soon-to-be-released The Tangled Bank. I can’t wait to see what’s next.
  • Word has it that even PZ Myers is working on some super-secret book project.

Apologies if I missed anyone or any titles (feel free to make additions/corrections in the comments), but there have been so many new blogger-penned books that it has been hard to keep track of them all! Even though I have not read many (or even most) of these titles, it is good to see so many of my science blogging peers in print. This year especially, it seems that a few authors have taken up science blogging and a number of bloggers have transformed ideas from their blogs into books, transitions that I am hoping to discuss in more detail during a session at ScienceOnline2010 in January.

Jason Rosenhouse recently published The Monty Hall Problem and is hard at work on a new title about what goes on at creationist conferences.
