My Mostly Harmless Musings

Good news alert: Blockbuster Science: The Real Science in Science Fiction is now out!
Early Reviews:

“David Siegel Bernstein’s charming and engaging book is a whirlwind tour of the mind-bending ideas and discoveries at the heart of modern science. Reality is often stranger than fiction; Blockbuster Science is a welcoming guide to anyone who wants to explore the ever-expanding boundaries between proven science and inspired speculation.”

—Andre Bormanis, television writer and producer, and science consultant for the Star Trek television and film franchise

“It’s always scarier if it’s possible, and Blockbuster Science takes the ‘fiction’ out of science fiction. Brilliant, weird, and unnerving. Highly recommended!” 

—Jonathan Maberry, New York Times–bestselling author of Patient Zero and Mars One

“The book covers everything, with a truly encyclopaedic ability to fire example after example from science fiction to illustrate the science being discussed…. Because this book is all about the science of science fiction, there are examples that blur the line between the two and really capture the imagination…. If you are looking for a primer on a wide range of sciences and a wide range of science fiction, then Blockbuster Science is your hitchhiker’s guide.

Available at:  Amazon  |  Barnes & Noble  |  IndieBound  |  Powell's Books  |  And your favorite local bookstore

To help celebrate its release, I have created a Spotify Playlist titled (of all things) Blockbuster Science. It includes all of the songs the book recommends- (consider it science and science fiction mood music). Don't give me that look. You will like it. I promise. So give Blockbuster Science a listen. 

In other writing news. I contributed a time travel article to The Portalist--a rockin site for science and science fiction. So give It's Only a Matter of Time: Time Travel in Fiction and Real Life a read. I'm sure it won't be a waste of time!

That isn't all! Here is a little something I wrote for John Scalzi's Whatever. It is my BIG IDEA. ----Click on it.

It is time for some nonsense.

There are Klingons off the starboard bow! It's worse than that, he's dead Jim! 

People have asked me if I have any upcoming plans. Well, here they are. I'm building something to help me around the house. Nothing can go wrong. Right?
