New Book Deal!

New Book Deal!

I'm thrilled to announce that my next book will come out with Simon & Schuster! In another of life's lessons that truth is stranger that fiction, I'll be telling the remarkable story of a monkey's head, the Pope's neuroscientist, and an international quest to transplant the soul. There's a two headed dog, too, just for good measure.

A little Frankenstein for your October…

A little Frankenstein for your October…

Perhaps you were just thinking to yourself, I wish there was some way I could hear more weird science... Something slightly ooky and kooky perhaps? Maybe some disembodied heads and missing brains?
