His novel, "Tech Transfer: Science, Money, Love, and the Ivory Tower," published in 2010, was described by the New York Times as "a hilarious" and "mordant satire about scientists and universities and how they do business." (NY Times, Science section, book review, May 25, 2010).

He founded and for 25 years edited Science & Government Report, an international newsletter which was acquired by John Wiley & Sons in 1997.
