I like a lot of his other books. "Good Omens" with Neil Gaimen as Co-author was good. It takes place on Earth, but it's got a nice story to it and a lot of humour.

I would appreciate it if someone could elucidate on what book is involved. All I got when I went to the site was "This book is no longer available" and was intrigued by the Wiki site.
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

If I remember correctly it was a book by someone who happened to be named "Terry Pratchett" but wasn't (we think) out Terry. :)

It was a book about crystallography, just to be clear.

(That wasn't a very good pun was it? :oops: )

It was cute, Dotsie ^-^

Can I have more detail on what the book was on? I'm presuming it's non-fiction, but what does it cover?

Thanks :wink:

I don't remember the exact title, but he has also written a paper on the study of bacterial enzymes using X-ray crystallography (it's a technique whereby you can "see" the shape of the protein, & get a better idea of how it works)

I find that sort of thing pretty interesting. I bet he'd be able to explain it well.
