I have just received unofficial word that the German translation of "What's Science Ever Done for Us?" will be in the creative hands of Berlin writer Falko Hennig. Hennig conducts a weekly stage for literary readings and seems to be an innovative figure on the Berlin cultural scene. I don't know what the German title will be yet, but expect it to be published by Rowohlt Verlag sometime in 2008.
