Strange Case Of The Mad Professor from the Author: Peter Kobel. It was one of the biggest scandals in New York University history. Professor John Buettner-Janusch, chair of the Anthropology Department, was convicted of manufacturing LSD and Quaaludes in his campus laboratory. He claimed the drugs were for an animal behavior experiment, but the jury found otherwise. B-J, as he was known, served two years in prison before being paroled, emerging to find his life and career in shambles. Four years later, he sought revenge by trying to kill the sentencing judge and others with poisoned Valentine’s Day chocolates. After pleading guilty to attempted murder, he was sentenced to twenty years in prison, where he died in mysterious circumstances. But before he was infamous at NYU, B-J, a scientific luminary, had also taught at Yale and Duke. One of the world’s foremost authorities on lemurs, our distant primate relatives on the remote island of Madagascar, he brought international attention to these endearing and endangered creatures. He cofounded the Duke Lemur Center in North Carolina and inspired a whole generation of scientists to study them and conservationists to save them and their habitat. His trials captured national headlines, but the mad scientist’s full story has never been told—until now.

Mad Professor from the Author: Mark Frauenfelder. Within these tantalizing pages lie the keys to the mysteries of science. For here, in strange and delectable detail, are dozens of hitherto secret experiments for concocting slimes and putties, inventing miniature robots and transport devices, growing crystal gardens, and many other useful creations-all crafted from widely available household products. Where did these wondrous projects originate? Apparently in a shadowy toy research laboratory that once operated out of a tiny island in the South Pacific. The Zoober Laboratory has since vanished, but we recovered its crown jewel-a secret notebook: a source of astounding information, fabulously illustrated. Lets just be thankful the pages are wipe-clean.

The Rabbit Report from the Author: David Figg. Once upon a time, a young grey Rabbit explored a forgotten WW2 chemical dump. Being young and foolish he drank some sweet tasting liquid. Very soon he was experiencing growing pains and, by the age of one, was five feet eight inches high and talking English with a South London accent. He called himself, rather un-originally, Bunny Warren and become a bit of a Dick; a sleazy, alcoholic, wise cracking, Private Eye. This is a report of one of the investigations of Bunny Warren, the Strange Case of the Missing Ginger. When a lady goes missing from a premier rate call line, Bunny and his beautiful assistant Jane, go in search of her. Along the way, they get drawn into a web of bad guys, fiesty females and a very odd mad scientist.
