"Whatever else you say about him, this man is truly a champion of the obscure." -Sinra Magazine (Japan)
David George Gordon is the award-wining author of 19 books on topics that range from watching gray whales and bald eagles to appreciating cockroaches, coral reef fishes and geoduck clams. The New York Times called his Field Guide to the Slug "gripping," citing its "almost breathtaking" account" of snail sex.
"You'll laugh out loud, squirm uncomfortably and lick your chops while taking this deliciously creepy culinary tour," enthused one reviewer for Amazon.com, describing Gordon's Eat-a-Bug Cookbook.
The freewheeling naturalist has been featured in Ripley's Believe It or Not, National Geographic Kids, The Wall Street Journal and Time magazine. He's been a guest on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, ABC's Nightline and The View. Gordon has been a guest speaker at the American Museum of Natural History, the San Diego Zoo, California Academy of Sciences, Northwest Flower & Garden Show and many other prestigious venues.
As a bug chef, he has performed at the Smithsonian Institution, Yale University and Singapore's Food Fest. He's also showcased his bug0-based cuisine at elementary, middle and high schools in 32 states and three foreign countries.
Gordon lives in Seattle with his wife (and illustrator) Karen Luke Fildes and a tank full of tropical fish.
