New Publication: “Grains of Wheat” in Nature


This week’s issue of Nature includes “Grains of Wheat,” my story of big pharma, chess mythology, and revenge. You can read it here for free. There’s also a link from the story that leads to a brief essay about the inspiration and writing challenges behind it, which I hope readers of this blog will find interesting.

    What a splendid splendid short story! Gave me a chuckle at the end and whist I was reading it I forgot all about my cardiac rehab!

    Many thanks.
