This is not a scientist

Whether you're a laboratory researcher or not, you probably know that the lab coat clad scientists of the movies and fiction aren't exactly the same as the real life scientists who help us understand our world. LabLit to the rescue. is dedicated to real laboratory culture and to the portrayal and perceptions of that culture – science, scientists and labs – in fiction, the media and across popular culture. The site is intended for non-scientists as well as scientists, and the goal is to inform, entertain and surprise...

I particularly like their LabList list of books that realistically depict the process of science without being science fiction themselves. Science + fiction = One happy nerd.
