Completely commercial announcement

Hello there!

This is John, the author of the factismals blog. I hope you’ve been enjoying the posts and that you’ve taken the opportunity to join in on the fun by being part of one of the 271 citizen science opportunities that I’ve posted this year.

space_cadets_coverIf you didn’t have a chance to read every post when it first went up and are too lazy busy to go back through the posts, I have some good news for you: I’ve taken some of the posts and arranged them thematically in a series of ebooks. The first one is called Factismals For Space Cadets and includes posts on how astronomical objects get named, what Jupiter sounds like, and why we never got those atomic rockets we were promised. The second is titled Factismals For Health Nuts and covers topics such as the meaning of blood types, how cholera was stopped by a pump handle, and how diseases get their names.

Healt_nuts_coverEach book includes thirty days of factismals and citizen science opportunities. They are available on Kindle (iTunes coming soon, Smaug wiling) for the bargain basement price of $1.49 each. If you’ve enjoyed my posts, please consider picking up a copy!

Sincerely yours,
