In March 2011, I will publish a major popular science title, Periodic Tales, with Viking Penguin (UK)/Ecco (US) and other international editions. Periodic Tales is a kind of cultural companion to the chemical elements, mingling the arts, history of science, personal anecdote and eccentric experiments.
Periodic Tales reveals how we know the elements without ever necessarily stepping into a chemistry laboratory, through the way they have been exploited by artists, craftspeople and industry, and absorbed into our language and literature.
