About the Author
Professor Richard Handy is an experienced writer and editor of numerous academic works of non-fiction. These include books, book chapters, commissioned symposium volumes, book reviews, special issues of scientific journals, and over a hundred scientific papers. Richard still travels extensively as an academic and has worked in some very cold, remote places including Alaska, parts of Canada, and the Arctic Circle via Norway. He also likes it hot, having worked on sharks in the Bahamas, visited the Sinia desert in Egypt as well as other parts of Africa. His work on new technologies has taken him to Washington, London, Berlin, Iraq and other places to give advice to governments as well as other agencies. His debut novel, The Reich Device, is an historical thriller about the rise of weapons technology in the Third Reich.
