Writing the Pilot: Creating the Series

Writing the Pilot: Creating the

When I finished Writing the Pilot a few years back, I figured I’d managed to cram everything I had to say on the subject in that little 90-page package.

The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2018 (The Best American Series ®)

The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2018

“This is one of the most exciting times in the history of science,” New York Times-bestselling author Sam Kean proclaims in his introduction to The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2018. “Things aren’t perfect by any means.
