Embiggin Books are wonderful. I say this not just because they specialise in science books and actually put my book in the window for a while, but because they are seriously trying to promote intellectual debate in Melbourne. I’d really encourage everyone to support them – its tough for bookshops everywhere, and the fact that someone stole some quite valuable items from their shop last year did not help.
As well as all that they’re great at promoting the fun side of science. Check out this gif they circulated of what happens if you heat mercury thiocyanate. (No, I doubt they will be holding demonstrations instore – given the toxicity of the gas, please do not try this at home).
