‘Crossing boundaries’ between the sciences and the arts has always been important to me, as both a fiction-writer and former scientist. Here there is information about my novels; short stories; ‘writer-in-residence’ projects (such as at Edinburgh’s Genomics Forum and Surgeons’ Hall Museum; attempts at ‘sci-art’ … and more.

The blog’s title, Eliot and entropy, is a line from Edwin Morgan’s poem Pleasures of a Technological University, where he juxtaposes scientific and literary terms on each line.
