I have to put in a word of praise for my friends at the CLS Outreach Office, who do a creative job of explaining the complexities of synchrotron science to a popular audience. Their work with high school students is a really amazing ongoing project.
I am not familiar with this author, but I can hardly wait to read a novel populated with my CLS colleagues!
