Meet the Author

Tobias Dingbat gave up a serious career in circus clowning to freelance as a political speech-writer. It happened that Australian politics entered a golden age of self-serving clowns for whom he wrote meaningless speeches. He is now retired, having divorced a show pony, an elephant and an alcoholic monkey.

This first illustrated book is Part 1 of a series to come, which will develop more characters most of them being fully human (for now). I hope to explore the interactions between "bio-born" and "techno-born" creatures, maybe raising interesting issues to confront us over the next 50 years.

As I am no scientist, I will imagine with a sense of humour to shrug off criticism. It's a hobby, with a simple wish to entertain people.

    Kind of boring...

    I liked this but it moved slowly and there were virtually no commas in the book. Whoever wrote this needs better punctuation.
