The Vesuvius Isotope Launch Party...A Resounding Success!

The launch festa/hafla was a success, and a good time was had by all (and lots of food and wine were also had by all...coincidence?) Attached are a few photos and a video, which only contains the wee tad beginning of my talk. If you want to hear more, I'm afraid you need to attend another!

A zillion thanks to all who attended, especially those who traveled to get there and those who bought a bunch of books even though I know you already own at least one. And thanks to Mysterious Galaxy for hosting and to my fabulous husband for providing the food and drinks.

And for those who missed it, please join us at one of these upcoming events.
Is the poster conspicuous enough?
Bryan at the food table...smiling because he was one of the first.
Kris behind a wall of books. Mysterious Galaxy knows how to lay them out to look really cool.
The captive audience, sedated from food and drink.
I swear, it's the glare. My forehead isn't quite that Worf-like. Chris looking at me like I'm a dork.
I am a dork.

From the ancient ruins beneath Mount Vesuvius, a two-thousand-year-old document has emerged. It is the only text ever attributed to the ambitious, inquisitive, and cryptic last pharaoh of Egypt...

When her Nobel laureate husband is murdered, biologist Katrina Stone can no longer ignore the secrecy that has increasingly pervaded his recent behavior. Her search for answers leads to a two-thousand-year-old medical mystery and the life of one of history’s most enigmatic women. Following the trail forged by her late husband, Katrina must separate truth from legend as she chases medicine from ancient Italy and Egypt to a clandestine modern-day war. Her quest will reveal a legacy of greed and murder and resurrect an ancient plague into the twenty-first century.

Kristen Elise, Ph.D. is a drug discovery biologist and the author of The Vesuvius Isotope and The Death Row Complex. She lives in San Diego, California, with her husband, stepson, and three canine children.

  1. The food was clearly fantastic, we were there for over three hours, and some of the guests were before that too. I had a salad with added shrimp and absolutely loved it!
