    “How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming”, Mike Brown, Pub. Spiegal and Grau, 2012.

    Brown, a Cal Tech Planetary Scientist, describes his quest to discover a tenth planet. He also addresses how someone stole one of his planetary discoveries (reads like a mystery novel), the birth of his daughter, and his comments on the demotion of Pluto.

    Read The World Walker by Ian W. Sainsbury. Pretty good self-published urban fantasy, so I'll probably keep on with the series.
