More About the Author

Nicholas Fourikis, MSc PhD
Nicholas was the recipient of a classical Greek education in Cairo, and spent school holidays either in Alexandria, the birthplace of Hypatia or in Greece.

After the family migrated to Australia he pursued undergraduate studies at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, and postgraduate studies at Macquarie and New South Wales universities.
During a distinguished career in Radio Astronomy he spent a year at the Tokyo Astronomical Observatory, discovered five interstellar molecules in collaboration with Australian, American and Japanese spectroscopists and authored two university textbooks on Radio Astronomy and advanced Radars. A complete list of his research papers, theses, and books is in his website: www.nicholasfourikis.com

The life and times of Hypatia, a fellow astronomer and scientist, fascinated Nicholas over a long time. More importantly Hypatia of Alexandria was the conduit of the ancient Greek wisdom to the modern world, the quintessential philosopher-hero who championed Humanism and demonstrated that women could make significant contributions in Astronomy, Philosophy and Mathematics.
Hypatia's feud with religious zealots at the dawn of the 5th century CE is our feud too because her foes under different names are ever present.

In his other literary novel, "Hollywood Amarroo - Two lovers shine in Australia's Deep North," he chronicled the lives of two young lovers who ignored the prejudices of the sixties to defend an Aboriginal mother accused of manslaughter.
Amarroo a prosperous town in the heart of Queensland borders a reserve the locals euphemistically call Hollywood where two hundred Aborigines live in lamentable poverty. While the story Nicholas chronicled took place during the sixties the Aborigines still live in lamentable poverty to this day.

Behind every story, there is a totally different story, under every scene, there is a totally different scene . . . . .

Hollywood, Amarroo, written by Nicholas Fourikis, is a good sample for this. Under all the fairness, under all the justice, there is unfairness, this is injustice, especially for the poor, color people. Before knowing more about them, one may already have his/her some prejudice thoughts.

I like reading Amarroo: this is shouting from ground: open your eyes, look at these fact which had been missed, see what you can do to improve this situation!

The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference.
The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference.
The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference.
The opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.

A revealing book about the prejudices,injustices and social stigmas still simmering in most (so-called) advanced countries.
This book opens our blinkered eyes to SEE how little we know about other cultures and cruelties suffered through our ignorance.
Laced with this theme is a charming love story that keeps the reader hooked into turning the pages fast and not putting the book down until the last paragraph.
MUST READ!
