Greetings. My name is Carl Zimmer. I'm the author of 15 books about science, including Parasite Rex and She Has Her Mother's Laugh. I write the "Origins" column for the New York Times, where I may cover Neanderthals one week and penguins the next.
"Friday's Elk" delivers observations about life, past and future. I also use it to provide updates about my new books, talks, and other goings-on. "Friday's Elk" is free, but you can support my writing with an optional monthly subscription. Thanks for reading.
