  • Note: Tony Thorne MBE is an Englishman, born and technically educated in London, England, but now living in Austria and, in the winters when he can, in the warmer Canary Island of Tenerife. He originally qualified as a chartered design engineer and subsequently created a well-known British company (now American owned) specializing in Applied Physics products. For developments in the field of low temperature (cryo)surgery instruments, very high temperature furnaces, processing carbon fibre (among other things) the Queen awarded him an MBE. Later he emigrated to Switzerland where he became CEO of the European Division of an American Corporation specializing in medical laboratory and computer-related products. Much earlier in life he also wrote science fiction and humorous stories, was an active SF Fan and a spare time lecturer for the British Interplanetary Society. He has since written papers and articles for several technical publications and has held patents in such varied fields as nuclear protection clothing, very high temperature processing and microbiological assay laboratory equipment. After many subsequent business adventures, including the pioneering development of AI computer software for business applications, he is now an enthusiastic author of quirky speculative fiction, mostly tall Science Fiction and Macabre tales, with over 100 short stories on file.
