R. Lucas was born in 1959 in Rugby, in the Midlands of England. He grew up with a sister and brother, both of whom were older than him.
I, for that is who is writing this, have always been interested in science and technology, avidly reading magazines and trying to keep up with the latest advances.
However, I have a generally negative view of humanity, with its destruction of the natural world. The glorious future with science solving every problem never materialised and all the problems just got worse.
If the simple child's question of ‘What came before that?' cannot be answered, then there is scope for anything, some of which can be found in this book.
I am single and live in Cheltenham, England. I am a gardener and worked for myself for a while. I have few qualifications but am a good gardener, I think. I hope you enjoy the book.
