About the Author

Dr. David Harland has his PhD in Computer Science from the University of St. Andrews. He is a long-standing member of the British Interplanetary Society. He studied astronomy to degree level, but in his words, "telescopes are cold, and so I moved into the warmth of the computer room." A career ensued that involved lecturing in computer science, academic and industrial research. In 1995, Harland "retired" to resume his interest in space. He started to write and has had two dozen books published to date, and several others under contract. These days he considers himself "an amateur hermit and a professional space historian."
