TOP SECRET: Lasers, gravitational waves and world domination…

Brian Greene helps Stephen Colbert with his not-so-secret plans for world domination. All I can say is keep an eye on this situation as Einstein’s theories prove as dangerous as ever. n

And, whatever you do,  remember to keep this vital  information out of the hands of our mutual enemies as world domination is totally different to world destruction.

This video has important information for anyone planning to take over the world using science – chemicals that are too dangerous to play with – so why not stick to genetic engineering instead?

Warning – spoiler alert! If you haven’t read Miss Lionheart and the Laboratory of Death – Once Bitten you should turn back now….

But if you have, then you will remember that Quetzee is in terrible danger and Missy is dangerously ill. Can you leave Lilly there in GKS’ underground lab all alone with only her small crew to get her through this crisis? No, of course not, you are not a thug, or a minion, and definitely not a zombie – you are an enlightened reader, and as such you cannot leave Lilly and her team all alone in mortal danger – which is why you know you have to read the sequel, and it’s coming out very soon now, any moment…so grab your copy of Miss Lionheart and the Laboratory of Death – Twice Poisoned in advance at http://www.amazon.com/Miss-Lionheart-Laboratory-Death-Poisoned-ebook/dp/B00SHC51C0

Spider PhotoCalling all young budding young scientists, Te Papa’s DeCLASSIFIED Sun 1 Mar 2015 is an event where you can talk to other scientists and discover more about the natural world and New Zealand’s flora and fauna.

So why not find out what that spider is? Or the one you found in your garden? Or climbing up your wall? Or onto your bed? Because as Lilly and Squidge will tell you, it’s important to know exactly what spider you are working with. Is it poisonous? Is it dangerous? is it going to be a good candidate for creating a Dreadbeast type spider hybrid?

Also, if you have a good picture of a spider, and you can’t make it to Te Papa (although the only good excuse I can see is that you live half way around the world and can’t catch a flight in time) you might want to send it in to Lilly at http://askmisslionheart.tumblr.com/, and if she can’t identify your spider, there’s a good chance she can blackmail Phil Sirvid into identifying it for her.

Happy hunting,

A.J.Ponder

To celebrate the upcoming release of my latest book  Miss Lionheart and the Laboratory of Death: Part 1: Once Bitten, Miss Lionheart has released an “ask me” blog – where you can ask all those tricky science questions like “are zombies real?” and “Why is this strawberry growing little strawberry plants?”

Do you have a burning science question you need answered? Or just want to know something about the Miss Lionheart books? Well, now you have a chance to have all those pesky questions answered. The weirder the better. So far Lilly’s fended off questions about strawberries and zombies, so throw her a curve-ball. See if Lilly knows her stuff by dropping by at  askmisslionheart.tumblr.com

You could even ask her some questions about her story. But I can’t promise she will tell you the truth. At least not all the truth. Miss Lionheart likes to play her cards close to her chest, so everybody is kept guessing as to what she might do next. Especially me.

Science icover-L-Modified-Once-Bittens an art, and mad science doubly so, with much of it based on real science, crazy theories, and even a little mythology. So find out more at askmisslionheart.tumblr.com and have fun! Because science is about having fun and playing with the world. And a large part of that is about asking why? Why is the sky blue? Why is my little brother taller than me? What is the difference between adult stupidity and adult condescension? Why is this strawberry growing little strawberry plants? Are zombies real?

Interview

  • How does a typical book get written in your world – what do you start with?
    I love writing, so a typical book starts with an idea and a character. Lilly Lionheart started as a girl genius fused with dangerous genetically designed animals Mastermind’s Lair. The evil mastermind idea never quite panned out as the character decided to be pompous rather than clever, but the whole mad science angle was fun. On the other hand, Wizard’s Guide to Wellington’s inspiration was in a round-about way The Hobbit. Tolkien used the countryside of Britain to create a legend he felt Britain lacked, discovering a “forgotten” history. As New Zealand and specifically Wellington already had its own legends, it was a matter of discovering how the local landmarks and legends interacted to create a very magical and dangerous city

• What awesome books and projects are you working in at the moment?

Top SecretFire Crow with Peter Friend: It’s a secret project, so I can’t really say anything, except that it’s really exciting and I love working with Peter who is a master of the Science Fiction. His Voyage to the Moon, published in Asimov’s is amazing.

The Sylvalla trilogy: Written by a pompous old university lecturer, F. Fradherghast’s Quest, Prophecy and Omens follow the adventures of Princess Sylvalla who desperately wants to be a hero. This series takes the tropes of fantasy and gently mocks them, while landing the protagonist in deeper and deeper trouble. I’d love for audiences to be able to read the trilogy on two very different levels, not unlike Winter of the Birds by Helen Cresswell. The idea is that it can be read as a straight adventure, but it can also be read at a deeper level, where things are not quite what they seem on the surface.

And finally I’m putting the bells and whistles on Miss Lionheart and the Laboratory of Death. It’s been the most crazy fun to write. …duck the gelignite, avoid the Acme fuses. Do whatever you need to, just make sure you don’t miss out — it’s more than your life is worth! Delayed by a run of bad health, Part One: Once Bitten will now be released on the 31st of Jan.
