New Book! New Blogs!

I know it's been a long time since I've updated the Lobster Blog. Some of you have written to say you've missed the blog, which I really appreciate.

Even without regular updating, in February the Lobster Blog received a maelstrom of hits when the popular blog BoingBoing linked to my blog entry on the new lobster killing machines being used by Whole Foods Market. On the day of BoingBoing's post, visitor traffic to this website went from a steady average of 150 hits a day to over 47,000 hits. Boing.

The reason I haven't been updating the Lobster Blog is that I've been completely consumed by the task of finishing a new book. I'm very excited about it. It's called The Story of Sushi: An Unlikely Saga of Raw Fish and Rice.

I've set up a new website,, that will feature the new book and that will be my new home on the web. If you liked The Secret Life of Lobsters, I think you'll enjoy reading The Story of Sushi as well. Check it out.

In conjunction with I've set up a new blog, the Scrawling Claw. (This Lobster Blog will remain on the web as an archive.)

I look forward to hearing from you on the new sites! Thanks for your interest.
