The Tangled Bank: Love, Wonder, and Evolution - print edition appearing

Press release  below. The anthology was released as an e-book last year and will now also appear as a standard book in printed format.

Apart from poems and stories by the people mentioned in the press release (and many others), this book also contains my longish essay/article "Science and the Sea of Faith", which I'm quite proud of - I think this is one of my better pieces, and it explores a number of the issues that we often discuss here. Unfortunately (for you) it's not available on the Internet. Oh noes, you'll have to buy the book to read the article! But maybe you'll also like the rest of the book.
The Tangled Bank: Love, Wonder, and Evolution
What does evolution mean? Marking the 150th anniversary of Darwin’s Origin of Species, The Tangled Bank: Love, Wonder, and Evolution is bursting with stories, poetry, and full-page artwork about the meaning of evolution. From science fiction and fantasy, to comedy and horror, to fairy tales and literary fiction, this anthology has a story for everyone.

An international lineup of more than 40 contributors includes Sean Williams, Brian Stableford, Patricia Russo, Carlos Hernandez, Jetse de Vries, Christopher Green, Bruce Boston, and Emily Ballou. Dark, whimsical, and shot through with wonder, The Tangled Bank explores the universe Charles Darwin revealed.

Available now as an e-book, and in print on 12th Feb 2011. To get your copy, visit http://thetangledbank.com/.
