How To How to Cook Like a Scientist
Do you have a hard time choosing between cooking shows and Mythbusters? If so, come meet Jeff Potter, author of Cooking for Geeks — a book described by one reviewer as “..the best science-meets-the-kitchen book to come out. Ever.” Written for anyone who likes to think about how things work, Cooking for Geeks is a compendium of food science, interviews, and experiments, with recipes to tie it all together. Books will be available for sale (cash only).

PM Press, another one of the Bay Area’s amazing independent presses, presents Outspoken Authors Speak Out
…it’s only a story… or is it? Fantasy, science fiction, and noir conspire as three of PM Press’s Outspoken Authors series discuss the problems, pitfalls and possibilities of writing fiction from a revolutionary perspective. Kim Stanley Robinson is the Hugo-winning author of The Lucky Strike. Terry Bisson is an award-winning short story writer and the author of Fire on the Mountain and The Left Left Behind. And L.A.’s own Gary Phillips (The Underbelly, The Jook) “combines politics and storytelling as well as any writer of crime fiction” (Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine).
