Writing the Elfyverse . . . and beyond

Just reviewed David P. Clark’s “Germs, Genes and Civilizations” for SBR.

Folks, I hope you’ll enjoy this book review — it’s on a subject most of us take for granted (if we think about it at all), and that is: how have humans gotten to this point, genetically, and why have we evolved in this particular way, with the particular set of genes that we have?  And how has all of this impacted history, or is likely to affect it in the future?

David P. Clark’s excellent GERMS, GENES AND CIVILIZATIONS answers many of these questions in a thoughtful and humorous way; it’s a book that leaves you with a sense you’ve really learned something, but haven’t hated the learning process — and that you might actually enjoy learning something from this particular “teacher” (in this case, writer) again.
