Sept. 17th Mtg: Powerful Poisons with a Pro!

Dr. Mark SiddallDr. Mark Siddall is the curator of the Museum of Natural History ‘s Division of Invertebrate Zoology, and recently curated an exhibit called The Power of Poison.

Dr. Siddall has led expeditions throughout the world, and his research has focused on the evolutionary biology of a wide range of parasites, from single-celled microbes to leeches. He now concentrates on researching Darwinian selection and diversity of hemotoxic venom proteins of leeches, among them the new species Tyrannobdella rex (T. rex), recently described by him and his students, who discovered it in the Amazon.

He’ll join us to discuss more about the enigmatic topic of poison that’s been fascinating us since one of the earliest writers, Euthyphro, recorded Socrates’ death after drinking hemlock.

As usual we’re gathering on the third Wednesday at the Jefferson Market Library at 6:30, with the program to begin by 7pm.. More information about this and upcoming programs is at the Meetings page.

Fresh Slices, With Even More New York Attitude

Fresh Slices, a Murder New York Style anthologyFresh Slices  , edited by Terrie Farley Moran, was the second in the Murder New York Style series of crime anthologies, and we’re thrilled to report that like our first, Deadly Debut, it’s also back in a sassy new eBook edition, thanks to the efforts of our chapter members in partnership with Glenmere Press!

When the New York/Tri-State chapter of Sisters in Crime began discussing this title, we were drawn to the idea of gathering crime stories from less-sung locales in the five boroughs. We were also enthusiastic about mixing genres and tones with the same kind of lively variety represented within our membership. So these stories are not only written by crime fiction authors you know, but by chapter members making their fiction debuts. These stories are truly slices of life from the most ethnically diverse, most densely populated city in America!

If you’d like more information about this collection, including links to a variety of vendors, please click the book’s title or cover, or just visit us at

If you’re a book blogger, reviewer, librarian, or bookseller, please click the link to  e-mail Clare Toohey, the chapter’s anthology chairperson, and she’ll happily get you a copy for your evaluation.
