Have I mentioned that Small Wonders is being published in America? I don’t think I mentioned that Small Wonders is being published in America. Well, Small Wonders is being published in America. The name has been changed to The Invisible Kingdom, and it got some updates (things move quickly in the world of Microbiology) and a new bonus Bonus Track at the end; also, some Australian references (Cricket, the distance from Sydney to Melbourne) were replaced by American-friendly ones (Baseball). Other than that, it’s the same book.
Which leads me to wonder what non-Australian readers will make of the title “Darwin to Cairns and back” which I gave to one of the sections. It’s my favourite title, since it describes perfectly both the issue I was writing about and a rather challenging road-trip route.
