James Nestor has written for Outside Magazine, Dwell Magazine, National Public Radio, The New York Times, Men's Journal, The San Francisco Chronicle Magazine, and more. He is currently working on a narrative nonfiction science/adventure book tentatively titled DEEP: A Sea Odyssey (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt). The book follows clans of extreme athletes, adventurers, and scientists as they plumb the limits of the ocean's depths and uncover weird and wondrous new discoveries that, in many cases, redefine our understanding of biology ― ours and sea's.
