Virtual Book Tour: Sites for Sore Eyes

Autopsy Report is a "log of experiences as a medical examiner intern" published by Brian. Seemingly launched in mid-May of this year, the blog shares stories about plane crashes, stillborn babies, visiting morgues, the lack of current research in forensic pathology, and other day-to-day encounters as part of Brian's internship.

Brian's writing is a mix of reportage on how people died, as well as the medical underpinnings and analyses of the autopsies performed. He also offers a range of medical and forensic links. The blog is an in-depth, personal peek at the life of a medical examiner. Readers of Mary Roach's Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers might find it an intriguing parallel read.
