A Quark for Mister Mark

One of my favourites. This anthology, which came out from Faber in 2001, was a pet project of mine and Maurice Riordan’s for years, which they finally agreed to let us do. The cover looks like  this, and not the one which has strayed onto Amazon and other sites by P2C2E (see Haroun and the Sea of Stories for expansion of the acronym). It’s still in print, hurrah!

Maurice is the actual poet, and is now a creative writing prof at Sheffield Hallam. His own latest collection The Water Stealer, is astoundingly good. Me, I still read poetry a good deal but just write about the science.
