Author's Comment: When I was at school the only science that interested me was biology because of a very excellent biology teacher. The sciences I found less interesting than, for example, English or History. My ambition was always to be a writer, hence my interest in English, and the great thing that I liked to read about was horrible things.But when I began to write horrible science, I began to realise that science is more horrible than any other subject. There are much more gory and interesting things to grab the imagination. And the more I found out about science, all the different sciences, physics, chemistry, biology, the more interested I've become.
