I do a lot of research for my novels, and so I thought I’d share a list of the nonfiction books currently on my desk, for those who might be interested:

Hoffman, Donald D. Visual Intelligence: How We Create What We See.

Wolfram, Stephen. A New Kind of Science.

Farah, Martha. The Cognitive Neuroscience of Vision.

Kuijsten, Marcel. Reflections on the Dawn of Consciousness: Julian Jaynes’s Bicameral Mind Theory Revisited (just published by the Julian Jaynes Society)

Minsky, Marvin. The Emotion Machine.

Harris, Sam. Letter to a Christian Nation.

Not entirely coincidentally, I’m off to buy my first pair of bifocals this week … :)
