Bad company


Phil Plait Phil Plait

Phil Plait writes Slate’s Bad Astronomy blog and is an astronomer, public speaker, science evangelizer, and author of Death From the Skies!  

My first book, Bad Astronomy, is still around, selling at low levels of activity around the planet. I'm glad, of course, and love to see that it still carries some interest. I rarely see it on bookshelves in mainstream bookstores, but a lot of museums and such still carry it.

That's why it was nice to get an email from BABloggee Robert Pruneau who found it being sold at the Royal Greenwich Observatory in England. That's great! But it's too bad about the other books near it:

Bad Astronomy book with others by Hawking

Couldn't they find anything better to display next to my book? PUHleeze.

Oh well. As I'm sure the other author would agree, you can't always pick your neighbors.
