Frankfurt Book Fair 2015

The Science Factory's rights list for the Frankfurt Book Fair 2015 can now be viewed as an electronic edition by clicking here. To print the rights list or store it on your computer, you will need to register with Issuu at http://issuu.com.
The fair runs from 14 to 18 October and Tisse and Peter will be there representing our authors and projects at table 7N in the Literary Agents and Scouts Centre in Hall 6.3. As usual, we will be working closely with Louisa Pritchard Associates (table 8N), who handle translation rights on behalf of Science Factory titles for all territories excluding Japan (English Agency) and Korea (Duran Kim).
As well as meeting several dozen publishers and editors from around the world and catching up with other friends and colleagues, we have many exciting new projects to talk about, including books on the quest for gravitational waves; a natural history of suicide; the mysterious world of fluids; the past, present and future of human vocal communication; how science is transforming our understanding of the biology of women; why science is drowning in data and what can be done to save it; how puzzles made us human; and how evolution is fighting back in our urban jungles.

Matthew Cobb on LA Times List

We are delighted to report that Matthew Cobb's LIFE'S GREATEST SECRET is one of the Los Angeles Times's recommended summer reads. The book tells the previously untold story of the scientists who discovered the genetic code, forever changing the face of science as we know it. Described as ‘a bloody brilliant book’ by Brian Cox and 'the logical sequel to Jim Watson's The Double Helix' by Jerry Coyne, it is published in June by Profile in the UK and by BasicBooks in the US in July.

The fair runs from 14 to 16 April and Peter will be there representing our authors and projects at table 12o in the International Rights Centre.

Among the various books that we will be pitching are new titles on how to be a Stoic, the different ways and circumstances in which people use more than one language, the truth about brain training, and how nature is fighting back on a human-dominated planet.
