21 June 2019 Excellent news. Nature has decided to reinstate their Scitable website. This is a truly brilliant science learning resource. Well done Nature!
15 June 2019 Very sorry to report that Nature tells me that their Scitable Science Learning Site is now closed and will not be returning. This a huge shame because it was a great learning resource for students.
28 May 2019 Thrilled and honoured to have joined Doug Young’s list at PEW Literary Agency.

10 May 2019 Just a quick note to reassure all of you who have been emailing me to find out why things have gone quiet around here. The short answer is that I am putting together a book – quite a big book actually. Chunks of it are off with my agent as we speak and it is a very dynamic process of discussion and refining. Hopefully he’ll have it in a couple of weeks and then be off doing his thing with it.
When that happens they’ll be more appearing on the website. Some new short stories and my collected cat stories KATS ARE MY KRYPTONITE.
30 April 2019 If you want to buy a copy of THE SILENT LANDSCAPE it can be found on Amazon here
29 April 2019 Since I’m thinking about the screenplay for THE SILENT LANDSCAPE I’ve been looking again at the reviews of the book.
Here’s the one from The Times.
THE SILENT LANDSCAPE is the story of the world’s first long-term marine expedition to study life in and under the sea. It was gone for four years (1872-1876) and when it returned had founded the science of oceanography.

19 April 2019 So pleased that the climate change threat is now being championed by Extinction Rebellion and others. Let’s not forget that this is only the start; population control and biodiversity enhancement next!
Maybe we have chance to save our planet after all!
15 April 2019 Am making a couple of Admiral Fitzroy storm glasses as I have on and off over the years. The recipe I am using is the so-called Perth Recipe as chronicled by Barry Holliday’s most excellent website. Interested to see the results!
Barry’s page led me to this hilarious blog by science guru Derek Lowe. It can be found here.
NB Storm glasses are easily purchased from many, many sites over the web (e.g. amazon). Probably best to go this route rather build one yourself unless you have had chemical training.
