In non-science-related news, there's a piece by me in today's Guardian about the all-night Javanese shadow puppet play (wayang), including the South Bank Gamelan Players, at the festival hall tomorrow. I doubt it's sold out.
In other news, the Independent newspaper recently put ITBOAH on its list of 10 best nature books. Which is nice. No sign of this online, but Oliver Morton has reproduced the list (which includes his own Eating the Sun) on his photosynthesis-related blog.
