Fourth-of-July Secrets-in-the-Attic Book Sale!

Having just returned from a ten-day family reunion road trip, I discovered a surprise in our attic: several extra boxes of my first book, At the Water’s Edge. You may recall that I put a bunch of autographed copies of this book on sale in my Amazon store to clear them out in advance of my office getting ripped apart. Well, the ripping-apart is now just days away, and now I have eighty more copies to get out of this house. (This photo shows just a selection.)

So–help! For the next week, you can get an autographed copy for six bucks. Order it here.

“What?” you say. “Someone get this man to a hospital. The tail pipe of his station wagon must have been inserted directly into his nostrils for his entire road trip, robbing him of all common sense!” Well, my carbon monoxide poisoning is your good fortune–get your copy now. The sledgehammers are breaking through very soon.

If you haven’t heard about the book, it’s about how major transitions in evolution take place–and how scientists reconstruct them. Publishers Weekly called it “an entertaining history of ideas written with literary flair and technical rigor.”  More details are here. Check it out, then clear me out. Thanks!
