Chapter G

“Blood from the Shoulder of Pallas” by Daniel Dreiberg (an excerpt from the Journal of the American Ornithological Society, Fall 1983).

  • In this academic essay, Dreiberg urges scientists not to forget about the art and poetry in studying birds.
  • We learn about his love and passion for the night owl, and by extension, Alan Moore’s wish for arts and science to enrich each other.
  • The title refers to Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom, who also went by Pallas and kept a pet owl on her shoulder.
  • This chapter’s worth a read for those curious about Dan Dreiberg and his alter ego.
