Bookseller have generously featured the Sun Kings in their September Technica newsletter.  They say:  “Stuart Clark loves to tell a good story, and he outdoes himself in his latest book, The Sun Kings: The Unexpected Tragedy of Richard Carrington and the Tale of How Modern Astronomy Began. Clark transports us back to Victorian England in 1859, when, during a solar flare, buildings burned, telegraphs failed, and compasses went wonky. Astronomer Richard Carrington tried to explain how the sun's magnetisms affect the Earth, but was met with ridicule and hardship, and died before he was proved correct. Check out Stuart Clark's Q&A to discover exactly what he found so fascinating about this nearly forgotten man. You'll save 30% on The Sun Kings, too.”
