January is Toxic 70s Month at the PorPor Books Blog !

Here at the PorPor Books Blog I occasionally take a respite from reading and reviewing sf content to focus on something else.

For January 2017, I thought I would turn to a subject near and dear to the hearts of many Baby Boomers who came of age in the 70s: Toxic Disasters.

chemical structure of dioxin

There were plenty of these throughout the 70s, both in the USA and abroad. Some of them I was aware of, while others are new to me.

The books for which I will be posting reviews all are fascinating........if disturbing.
