Jon Armstrong - Interview at SciFi.com!
I was interviewed for SciFi.com about my novel Grey, which was just short-listed for the Philip K Dick Award, and said,
"As a teen I was quiet, shy, and my own parents were just too cool to rebel against. The world of Grey was a place where I could vicariously experience the rage, hurt and self-righteousness of being a teen. It was fun--probably more so in fiction [than in reality]."

Are We Alone? - New episode available tomorrow, Jan, 21, 2008: "Aging: Stop Right There!"
Imagine if aging were a disease like measles, one that could be cured. Some scientists think it's possible and that we'll eventually halt - or at least slow - the march of time and extend lifespans into the triple digits and beyond. 100 could become the new 40, and 1000 the new 500! But that's a lot of years of filling out tax forms and showing up for dental hygiene appointments. Do we really want to live that long? If so, we should tap into the secret of longevity from Ming, a 400-year-old clam. Also, the surprising story of how aviator Charles Lindbergh helped develop a medical device that prolonged lives - all in support of the Nazi cause. Guests for tomorrows episode are: |
- Aubrey de Grey - Biogerontologist and author of Ending Aging: The Rejuvenation Breakthroughs That Could Reverse Human Aging in Our Lifetime
- Michael Rose - Ecologist and Evolutionary Biologist at the University of California - Irvine
- David M. Friedman - author of The Immortalists: Charles Lindbergh, Dr. Alexis Carrel and Their Daring Quest to Live Forever
- Al Wanamaker - Researcher at Bangor University's School of Ocean Sciences
