Henry Gee is a longtime editor at the science journal 'Nature'. His books encompass the depths of time and the outermost reaches of space, whether in non-fiction (DEEP TIME, JACOB'S LADDER, THE SCIENCE OF MIDDLE-EARTH); fiction (THE SIGIL TRILOGY, BY THE SEA); or both (A FIELD GUIDE TO DINOSAURS, with stellar dino-artist Luis V. Rey.) His latest book is THE ACCIDENTAL SPECIES: MISUNDERSTANDINGS OF HUMAN EVOLUTION. "If you only read one book on human evolution, or indeed one book on evolution, make it this one," writes Ted Nield. "Quite simply, the best book ever written about the fossil record and humankind's place in evolution," adds John Gribbin. He is well into the first draft of ACROSS THE BRIDGE: UNDERSTANDING VERTEBRATE ORIGINS, to be published in 2017. He lives in Cromer, Norfolk, England, with his family and numerous pets.
