I'm a half-and-half creature. Born (1939) son of a Church of England clergyman, from my earliest days I was scientifically inclined. I studied biochemistry at University College London the first year they offered biochemistry as an undergraduate degree course, but then embarked on a career in publishing, as first a book and graphic designer, but then as a medical writer/editor. After that I became a web publisher, but then a novelist. And I've a fair record as an artist/illustrator. I feel myself to be as much invested in science as in the creative arts.
That's given me the nerve to claim I can represent the arts on the matter of evolution. Since 1992 I've been writing novels and stories about the meaning of evolution, starting with "Father, in a Far Distant Time I Find You," a utopian novel projecting the history of evolutionary theorizing to date onto a string of civilizations over the upcoming four thousand years, and including a romantic comedy "Me and The Genies." In 2015 I summed up my concerns with what it means it evolved in a Kindle book titled "What it Means We Evolved: Evolution for artists and the humanities."
So I write books and stories. But I also have written a play, and I perform as a ventriloquist, operating two dummies at the same time, for humanities student groups, see http://youtu.be/h14fao5F_P4. To encourage students of the humanities to come up with new theories of evolution I maintain the website evolutionforthehumanities.com.
