Star Trek VI and Star Trek Beyond are philosophically linked. At least that's what I argue in my latest Outpost 31 piece, which is worth your time if you're a fan of metaphor in science fiction.
Apart from that I recently wrote up a silly piece for Panic in the Skies about what other songs might be on Starlord's mixtapes.
This past week I posted a piece on PITS about the role of faith in science. I ran this idea past a few fellow scientists before posting it and found that at first they didn't like it until my premise was explained, at which point they agreed with me. Just mentioning faith and science in the same sentence can put some people off. Give it a read and then feel free to debate with me in the comments on PITS or on Twitter.
I've been finding time here and there to edit together a collection of flash fiction I wrote for the now shuttered Elephant Words blog. Watch this space for its launch on Kindle.

Caution: This one contains math equations! Be brave and give it a go.
My recent hospital experience made me realize that I had no idea how antibiotics work. I corrected that failing and wrote a very personal science article to share my understanding.
