Book Number Two. Zoostalgia.
Hey yo dudeskis,
My second book, Zoostalgia, is finally here (this is an image of its wordless cover)! The book is a celebration of the Pleistocene megafauna, a group of huge animals that seemed to (geologically) vanish from existence. Here is the Amazon.com blurb:
Imagine that you and I are time travelers walking through time from the deep past to the present. A foot ago, we witnessed Jesus’s birth and two feet ago, we watched the construction of Stonehenge. Between five and six feet ago, we watched as woolly mammoths, saber-toothed cats, giant bears, and South American elephants vanished from the face of the earth. This book is a celebration of these massive, recent, and wonderful animals - creatures that have been disappearing since humans started discovering continents and a warming climate brought an ice age to its end. Check out animals like Australia’s horned tortoises, Madagascar’s dwarf hippopotami, the giant sloths of the Americas, the dwarf mammoths of the Arctic, and many, many more.
(To further grasp this geological recency, the dinosaurs went extinct six miles ago)
Anyway, the book is available on Amazon, directly from me (at firstname.lastname@example.org), or at any of the following locales (list will be periodically updated):

Here are some nice screenshots of the inside of the book (scroll down to “a book”) (also check out that blog in general - it’s a pretty great science blog).
Thanks! and godspeed, Manvir
