Start the Year

So the first book I’m reading this year is one I received as a birthday present –

The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle…

The Demon-Haunted World by Carl Sagan

This is a book I’ve been wanting to read for a long time but have never managed to track down. It basically should be on the required reading list at school – now more than ever – as it teaches you about critical thinking. Sagan does so mainly with the alien phenomena but also with many other pseudoscience subjects. I’m about half way through and it really does need to be pressed into the hands of woolly thinkers everywhere!

Pete Sutton has a not so secret lair in the wilds of Fishponds, Bristol and dreams up stories, many of which are about magpies. He's had stuff published, online and in book form, and currently has a pile of words that one day may possibly be a novel. He wrote all about Fishponds for the Naked Guide to Bristol and has made more money from non-fiction than he has from fiction and wonders if that means the gods of publishing are trying to tell him something. You can find him all over social media or worrying about events he’s organised at the Bristol Festival of Literature. On Twitter he’s @suttope and his Bristol Book Blog is here: He's contributing editor of Far Horizons e-magazine which can be found here:
