I am a geologist / geochemist living on the west coast of Scotland, north of Glasgow.
I’ve been enjoying books since I could look at pictures, so nearly forty years now. My reading tastes include a lot of science fiction, fantasy, history, science and non-fiction. A particular interest lately has been books on the history of science and mathematics.
Some favourite authors:
Thrillers: Len Deighton, Desmond Bagley, Colin Forbes.
Science fiction: Joe Haldeman, David Brin, Larry Niven, Arthur C Clark, Robert Heinlein, Iain M Banks.
Fantasy: Robert Jordan, JRR Tolkien, Tad Williams, Raymond E Feist, David Eddings.
History: Simon Schama, Carl Sagan, John Gribbin, Felipe Fernandez-Armesto.
Travel: Paul Theroux, Patrick Leigh Fermor, Sir Richard Burton, TE Lawrence.
