I’m not a proper science journalist, and I’m certainly not a scientist. None the less, I’m interested in how the world works, and some stories are too interesting to be left to the specialists. Here are a few that I’ve worked on over the years.
EYE BELIEVE: A PERSONAL VOYAGE INTO LASER SURGERY (The Observer, 26 September 1993)
LAST ASPIRIN HERO: THE STRANGE LIFE OF HEINRICH DRESER (Daily Telegraph, 22 August 1998)
THEY CAME FROM THE DEEP: MYSTERIES OF THE GIANT SQUID (The Independent, 7 August 2002)
BLACK AND WHITE AND ALL OVER THE PLACE: THE TROUBLE WITH BADGERS (The Independent, 13 June 2003)
