Joseph D'Agnese February 12, 2014 Joseph D'Agnese February 12, 2014 Paging Dr. Rugg My co-author Gordon Rugg is in the news this week over a recent news story about the mysterious Voynich manuscript. A scientist in Delaware sparked the coverage by arguing that some of the strange plants in the book look a lot like New World plants. Rugg, who is the author of Blind Spot, the book we cowrote, is quoted in this piece in the New Scientist. The blog Moby Lives covers the story here, in more understandable language. And Rugg continues his series on how to hoax the Voynich here.
