An illustrated guide to pussy parts, politics, and science.

Should I stick an egg-shaped rock up there, or nah? Pussypedia presents an obsessive amount of peer-reviewed science in simple, fun language. This book is about evaluating quality of information, seeing how gender and race narratives have shaped science, holding the known and unknown together, forgoing neat conclusions, and finding a richer Pussy Truth. Pussypedia is more than just a book about pussies, it is a brilliant manifesto about living with one.

The Roman Empire has been a source of fascination to political thinkers, the obsession of some of the greatest historians, and has influenced art down the ages. Now, in a fresh new take on the era, historian Stuart Laycock sums up the subject in 100 haikus. These original poems are sometimes witty, sometimes sad, sometimes playful, sometime serious, but with only a few syllables to play with they are always concise and to the point. Read them in order for a sense of the vast sweep of Roman history, or dot around and find hidden gems. Power, glory, death, slaughter, murder, ambition, lust, love and triumph. It's all here. Each haiku comes with a brief historical text to accompany it and an evocative original illustration by John Travis.
