I have been a science writer most of my life, with excursions into cultural history, poetry, futures studies - and stints in academia, the civil service (briefly) and publishing (even more briefly). Nowadays, I freelance from Bristol, spending most of my time on books. I also write about jazz, just for fun.
My latest offering is the Rough Guide to the Future. My favourite (and also I think the most informative) review so far is here - http://communicatescience.com/zoonomian/2011/08/23/book-review-the-rough-guide-to-the-future-by-jon-turney/
