  • Global time rift phenomena result in Freaky Friday-type swappings between past and present, with dinosaur-filled forests appearing where major cities stood just a moment ago, causing great panic in the characters and great delight in the readers. Dinosaurs neither panic nor delight, they just stomp and eat.

  • Well-researched pop science exploring advances in fields like cloning and de-extinction in both a factual and a "what if" approach, making the material fun and accessible to the lay reader. It's a humorous book, advertised as employing "both science and willful irreverence." Because science, irreverence, not taking things seriously, and bringing things back from the dead has never once led to hubris-fueled disaster.

  • A select group of international VIPs are invited to tour a new, very secretive Chinese zoo before its official grand opening, where it's revealed that China has dragons. Hundreds. Of. Dragons. They've been kept secret for 40 years while a huge theme park has been built up around them and it's all totally safe, so come marvel at the Dragons of China! They're excited to meet you. Sorry, bad translation. To "eat" you.

  • True story: scientists are reviving an extinct species and creating a home for them in Siberia called Pleistocene Park. HOW? by smooshing together DNA extracted from a woolly mammoth and a today-elephant. WHY? Because mammoths were good at preserving the permafrost, which keeps the methane and carbon in. Will we live to rue the day we reintroduced these grass-munching ancient pachyderms to our world? Wait and see!

  • A fine entry in the "Dear God, Science, what have you done?" genre. Medical scientists have eliminated disease by repurposing the humble tapeworm, with some genetic modifications, into an all-purpose implant that prevents illness and allergies, delivers medication, regulates immune systems, even works as a contraceptive, if desired. It's a breakthrough that will make humanity great again. Unless the tapeworms object?

  • A book chock full of advanced principles related to mindset and manifesting. I discover new nuggets every time I read this book.

  • A gut check for your perspective and an invitation to cultivate the seat of the soul.
