"Survival of the least inadequate" - Who knew a slide-show could be fun?

Vampires! Big Pharma!

The horror! The horror!

Anyone who is interested in science fiction, dead-pan satire, the evils of "big pharma" or, well, actually plausible vampires really ought to check out this slide-show. (But be warned, it's 15 or 20 minutes long.)

Peter Watts' fiction is arguably a little bleaker than the tongue-in-cheek presentation might suggest, but all of his novels are available on his site, so sample away. But buy his actual books if you find yourself liking what you read.
