Circus #10 is Up!

On short notice and likely with a barrage of last minute submissions David at Science and Sensibility has put together a fantastic tenth edition of the Circus of the Spineless featuring a cool graphic linked to the various taxonomic groups. The systematic grouping is a natural so to speak but his arrangement and narrative are well thought out and sensitive. All in all it's a wonderful issue for browsing and enjoying our little obsession. Congrats David on a great issue!
