The American writer Patrick Rotfuss is known for works in the genres of fantasy and science fiction

The American writer Patrick Rotfuss is known for works in the genres of fantasy and science fiction. Being an avid reader and lover of literature, a man once decided to start writing and did not lose: his books diverge in solid runs, receive prizes and are translated into other languages, including Russian. The bearded big man Rotfuss looks like a fairy-tale character and creates magical worlds full of legends, myths and songs.

Childhood and youth
Patrick James Rothfuss was born in 1973 in Madison, the capital of Wisconsin. A loving family encouraged the child’s passion for reading, and by the end of school he had read 2 thousand books, each of which became a creative fuel for the future writer’s start. The author is ironic that this love was caused by the long northern winters and the absence of cable television in the house.

Since 1991, the guy began to study at the University of Wisconsin, where he stayed for 9 years. Initially, he studied chemical technology, but realized that it was boring, and decided to change the profession to a clinical psychologist. Here, Continue reading

Please tell us what the zoological education gave you. What role do you think it played in shaping your worldview?

Reading Darwin and studying the theory of evolution have changed my view of things. I did not understand this theory before.

My parents were religious, and they belonged to a church that supported creationism, at least very literally understood the book of Genesis in the Bible. And this was a kind of revelation – to read Darwin himself. In addition, from there I learned a lot about scientific work, about what hard work it is and how much you Continue reading

Peter Watts

Peter Watts about himself: “He spent most of his adult life trying to decide whether to be a writer or a scientist, but eventually became their hybrid. He was awarded several awards in the field of ecophysiology of marine mammals, video documents and science fiction. He received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees at the University of Guelf and his doctorate at the University of British Columbia. Spent ten years on training (not weak optimism, right?) And the same amount – trying to work by profession and not become a “litter” for financial groups. The latter turned out to be somewhat more complicated than he thought (ha ha) and, as a result, during the 90s he regularly received money from the “green” – for the protection of marine creatures, from the US fishing industry – for the support of a domestic producer, and from Government of Canada – for loyalty to the grave.

Having come to the conclusion that since his scientific works already include a significant element of fiction, it will be easier to add characters, a plot to them and try to enter a wider market than a handful of subscribers to the Journal of Theoretical Biology. Continue reading
