A few of the things that caught my eye on the internet this week…
A very unusual book. It’s not a self-published memoir, but one published by a chemical company? And a fascinating glimpse into the world of chemistry in a time when things were very very different than they are now. Recklessness, determination, and a young man who would literally do anything in his quest for knowledge.
I’m up at the Mad Genius Club today, talking about fatigue, industry articles, and ranting a little bit about the traditionally published world’s aversion to competent characters.
Writing a mystery or police procedural? Need some accurate resources and don’t trust those ‘forensics for mystery writers’ books on Amazon? Here’s a couple of websites that may help. This one is all about blood, spatter, stains, passive, altered, skeleton… The terms you will need to talk the lingo. And then there’s this: what role do insects play in forensics? This site will open a few doors to better understanding bugs after death and what they can tell us.
And finally, for math students: you have to check this site out.
