    The Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham

    I was (and still am) a huge fan of Wyndham. His scfi was well thought through, believable and grabbed you from the start. I confess that my favourite was his, "The Trouble with Lichen," but "The Kraken Wakes" and "Chrysalids" were excellent as well. An agent recently told me that there isn't a...

    The Origin of Our Species by Chris Stringer

    Thanks for reminding me I intended to get a copy of this. Humanity is still evolving as you say. We are quite different from even our forebears from 200 years ago and a lot different from those a 1,000 years ago. The shrinking brain observations though are still debated as there is some...

    Questions for Sci-fi novel

    Hi Leon, An object that large coming that close would hit us, probably resulting in mutual destruction. Large objects develop some interesting interactions, and planetary bodies tug and pull one another. I suggest you do a search for information on gravitational interactons between bodies...

    At last - I'm in e-formats ...

    Yes - and no. Some are now routinely going this route, others require a bit of prodding, or, as I have done, you shop around until you find an e-Publisher for your work. I don't think the paper book is dead, it will retain a place I think, but more and more people find an e-reader more...

    Sci fi funerals

    You could try Babylon 5, there are funerals in it for Minbari, several other alien cultures and a humanist style sending loads of self propelled coffins onto a trajectory that will carry them into the local star. They are spread out throughout the series though, so they may take some finding.

    terraforming

    Personally I would try for Mars or Europa. On Mars the effort would have to be focused under domes as the magnetosphere is too weak to shield the radiation and retain much of an atmosphere. It is also very cold because of the thin atmosphere. By utilising a combination of below ground and...

    Would you use a "transporter" if you knew...

    As has already been said here, "Transporters" have a number of major technical problems - like converting a physical human being into a form of energy, beaming it to a receiver, and then rebuilding it with all the bots in exactly the right place. Even our own DNA gets rewritten - badly - as we...

    Do You Believe In Extraterrestrial Life?

    Wolfrunner, this may be off topic, but I have often wondered at this assertion, usually directed at Christianity, that people thought the world was flat. This seems to be based on the 18th and 19th Century misrepresentation of artefacts such as the Mappa Mundi which were 'Spiritual...
