Riffing on Strings now available!
I'm pleased to announce that the anthology about string theory that I eagerly anticipated (probably because one of my poems has found a home inside) has arrived! Here's what a few people said about it:
“Sean Miller and Shveta Verma have put together an exhilaratingly eclectic anthology of creative and expository writing about one of the most exciting (even if controversial) intellectual fields of our time: string theory. Just Miller's erudite introduction by itself is worth the price of this sparkling collection.”
– S. Abbas Raza, Editor of 3 Quarks Daily
“The jury is still out on whether string theory serves to explain the nature of reality, but the writers who have contributed to Riffing on Strings convincingly demonstrate that it serves very well as a springboard for the imagination. From Sean Miller's cogent introduction on, this is an engaging—and much-needed—dialogue between art and science.”
– Frank Wilson, Former Book Review Editor, The Philadelphia Inquirer & Creator of Books, Inq.
If anyone would like to do a review of the anthology, please let me or one of the editors know and we'll be happy to get you a copy of the anthology. Even a short review on Amazon.com would be welcome! There's also a free .pdf sample available for download on the publisher's website. I'd also like to extend my thanks to S. Abbas Raza and Frank Wilson for taking time from their busy schedule to read the book and provide some of the blurbs for the back cover. Thank you!
Finally, I've updated my website, November Sky, and added a few new photos and poems. Take a look if you're curious.
