Special Book News For All Patrons!
So as you know, my first book: Beyond The Galaxy: how humanity looked beyond the Milky Way and discovered the entire Universe, is coming out in just six weeks or so!

As a special bonus for you, there's an additional (the first) chapter of the book now available for download here: Chapter 1: So Far, So Good: The Universe At The Start Of The 20th Century (1,205 KB).

As an even better bonus, you can now pre-order the book from World Scientific: http://www.worldscientific.com/worldscibooks/10.1142/9547#t=aboutBook, and score yourself a cool 30% discount by entering the promo code: WS15XMAS30.

And if you ever run into me in person -- and I'll be announcing upcoming events here on my Patreon, of course -- time, conversation and autographs are always free. Cheers!
