Metamagician and the Hellfire Club: (»I am an Australian writer, philosopher, and critic. I am currently a graduate student and sessional lecturer in the School of Philosophy and Bioethics, Monash University. As a creative writer, I specialise in science fiction and fantasy. Some examples are my Terminator trilogy and and my recent novel, Kong Reborn … a sequel to the original King Kong movie. My non-fiction work frequently deals with issues involving the human, or posthuman, future. I am interested in the ethics, and possible regulation, of emerging technologies, and the future of religion, morality, art, literature, political organisation, and human nature itself. I have a particular interest in the history and current state of the science fiction genre – and where it may be headed. Some of my articles are available on my web site. My formal qualifications include First Class Honours degrees in Arts and Law, a Ph.D on the supposed return to myth in contemporary literature, and a Master of Bioethics degree. I’m now completing a second Ph.D (in philosophy); this may seem extravagant, but I have my reasons!«)
