'Sometime in 1906, butterfly hunter Albert Stewart Meek disembarks from an old pearler named 'Hekla' on the north-east coast of New Guinea. He unloads his provisions and tools of trade: killing bottles with cyanide of potassium for small insects, syringes with acetic acid for larger ones, non-rusting pins for setting his trophies, cork-lined collecting cases. He waves off the boat with instructions to the skipper to return for him in three months.' (Publication abstract)


1 1 y separately published work icon The Best Australian Science Writing 2016 Jo Chandler (editor), Sydney : NewSouth Publishing , 2016 11251553 2016 anthology criticism

'From the furthest reaches of the universe to the microscopic world of our genes, science offers writers the kind of scope other subjects simply can't match. Good writing about science can be moving, funny, exhilarating or poetic, but it will always be honest and rigorous about the research that underlies it.

'Now in its sixth year, The Best Australian Science Writing 2016 brings together knowledge and insights from Australia’s brightest thinkers as they explore the intricacies of the world around us. This lively collection of essays covers a wide range of subjects and challenges our perceptions of the world and how we exist within it.' (Publication summary)
