Two Orion Essays included in Best American Anthology

We’ve only just become aware that two essays we published in 2006 are featured in the 2007 Best American Science and Nature Writing anthology, and another was listed among the Notable Science and Nature essays for 2006.

Both Jeffrey A. Lockwood’s “The Nature of Violence” (January/February 2006) and Lynn Margulis’s and Emily Case’s “The Germs of Life” (November/December 2006) are featured and reprinted in the book.

Victoria Finlay’s “The Tears of Trees” (July/August 2006) was a Notable essay.

Congratulations to all the authors! And to us — that’s a strong showing.
