Book Review Upgrade: Links!!

So, one of the features here at Lost in Transcription is the Genetical Book Review, where I review books . . . genetically! I cover both fiction and nonfiction. When reviewing fiction, I focus less on the book itself, and more on some interesting science related to the book. (Although I will try to give you a sense of what the book is like, so that you can decide if it seems like something you want to read.)

As of today, the reviews also feature links, where you can buy a copy of the book and support your favorite New-Jersey-based evolutionary-biology-and-poetry blog at the same time.

What? No, not that blog. This blog.

You’ll find four links at the bottom of each review: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, indiebound, and Alibris. That means that you can indulge your own bookstore preferences, at least as long as your preferred online bookstore is Amazon, Barnes and Noble, indiebound, or Alibris.

Here are the reviews that I have posted to date. More are in the pipeline, and will be coming out soon!

  1. A famous pair of primatologists disappeared in a remote area of the eastern Congo years ago while on an expedition to find a rumored new species of primate, possibly a form of ape, the locals call Sungudogo. Years after their disappearance a secret society hires his former graduate student, now a well known primatologist who works in West AFrica, and a wizened logistical manager who lives part time in the region, to follow the missing team’s footsteps and find out what happened to them.
