Okapi, robotics and a horrible history
Let's start with my Extinction Countdown articles for Scientific American:
'Forest Giraffe' Now Endangered: Okapi Populations Drop 50 Percent in 18 Years
Sunday Species Snapshot: Daggernose Shark
Next up, two newsy items for Mother Nature Network:
Extremely tiny robot floats through the air — like a jellyfish
Why the FDA told genetic testing company 23andMe to cease marketing
And finally this week, a horrifying slice of history that was written for MNN but which fit better at their sister site, Treehugger:
Thomas Edison: Inventor, genius ... elephant killer?
In non-article news, the fourth edition of LORE -- the horror-SF-fantasy anthology series for which I serve as contributing editor -- is now available. I hope you'll check it out.
By the way, this weekend marked my seventh anniversary as a freelance writer. I wonder what will happen in year # 8?
