Because science into life doesn't go

For the Benefit of Steve-Kind

A story I wrote while in the USA called "Dating for the Wired Generation" has just sold to the Nature Futures series!

Nature is, as I hope the majority of the readers of this blog know, one of the world's leading science journals, and a nice credit to have on my, currently very modest, bibliography.

This piece is a good example of how a writer can use his personal experiences to infuse his fiction with a high level of authenticity; all those failed dates through the Guardian Soulmates website weren't for nowt.*

Mattatuk, Long Island. That's where I wrote it!

*I don't mean that. From my end they were all pretty good dates, just not with that special person.
