A new! Carl Sagan book!?

I receieved the October 2006 issue of SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN in the mail today and while skimming through it, I came across a short review for a new book by Carl Sagan (who died nearly 10 years ago). Edited by his widow, Ann Druyan, the name of the book is The Varieties of Scientific Experience: A Personal View of the Search for God.

I loved every Sagan book I ever read, but especially relished his last two books, which debunked a lot of nonsense and were beacons of reason in an often irrational world. The new book comes out on November 2, according to Amazon.com, and I look forward to reading it.

Incidentally, the cover story of this month’s SCIAM is on the mystery of supernovae, and I look forward to reading it sometime this weekend, between the Yankee/Red Sox games.
