Optical Allusions by Jay Hosler.

May 1, 2008

Optical Allusions by Jay Hosler tells the story of a disembodied brain who accidentally loses the eye of newt (Notopthalmus viridescens to be exact- that’s apparently a newt that can regenerate it’s lenses) belonging to the three witches from MacBeth. The comic narrarating his adventures recovering it, which are amusing and inventive as well as educational as to the evolution and function of the eye, is interspersed with short prose explanations of the scientific concepts alluded to. I can’t be bothered to say anymore, good thing there are real bloggers out there (1, 2, 3). I’ll just close by saying that if you haven’t read Hosler’s The Sandwalk Adventures yet, you should run screaming to buy it now. (clicky disclosure: link is to author’s online store, where the books cost almost half again what they costs at various other online places whose names have probably already occured to you)
