Fergus Bannon writes thrillers that take a jaded and heretical view of what we think we know of reality. The first of these is 'The Heretic' and a second, 'Leviathan's Fall', is soon to appear.
Following graduation he ran away to sea, his merchant shipping line taking him to some of the choicer trouble spots around the world. Rich though the seafaring life was, it could also be rather dangerous. After having a run-in with a death squad in South America, and then nearly getting his throat slit in Jamaica, he began to harbour doubts about his long term prospects. A hurricane in the Atlantic, and a major fire on board ship in the Pacific, only reinforced this view.
Nursing an ambition to live until the age of forty, he therefore came ashore and eventually became a Professor of Physics. Now he spends his time biting the hand that has fed him.
He has also written a science fiction novel called 'Judgement' and an anthology of short stories called 'The Unusual Genitals Party'.
