And I'm British. Excuse me while I do an evil laugh. My piece on sushi-digesting genes that hitched a ride from ocean bacteria to Japanese guts has been included in this year's anthology. I'm honoured for several reasons. The anthology was edited by the incredible father-and-daughter team of Floyd and Rebecca Skloot, she who wrote one of the best science books of last year. It features writing from some of the best in the business like Carl Zimmer and Deborah Blum. And I'm proud to represent the fine world of science blogging in an anthology that's traditionally dominated by mainstream publications; this is actually the first time a blog has been included. Represent! The book will be released on 27th September in the US and 20 October in the UK. Thanks to the Skloots for including me and congrats to my fellow nominees. My only regret is that my attempt to sneak "favourite" into an American book was foiled by an eagle-eyed editor.
