Introduction Hi, I'm Alan Gillis. Glad you clicked in. THROUGH THE EYE OF ALAN GILLIS started with photos I took on walks and daytrips since 2005. It's the coffee table book backdrop to my life in Muskoka while I've been finishing UP ON SEVEN DOLLARS, an obsessional and satiric novel on Mexico. Dickens smashes into Lowry on the cover of ¬°ALARMA! Any brilliant agents or editors in book publishing, drop me a line. THE SCIENCE OF CONUNDRUMS was forced on me. A lot of science writing is from the geewhiz school or rewrites of press releases. To have a bit of fun with Science as Religion or the Hubris in Science, I take a hammer to it and see what flies. NEWSHAMMER knocks the world we get from media. News and culture get a surgical makeover. Journalism has been shrinking and slipping through the cracks of an Internet Overload. Back to significant facts and analysis. And what's the NextGen up to? NEWSHAMMER ON CAMPUS covers the best student reporting on the university scene. My own university years set me up to write. English Lit and Theater, Classics, Film and Photography, and Premed. I got my start in journalism. Add many more years of adventure travel and French for something to write about.
Interests Stopping the decline of civilization and the environment. The correlation is startling. A fresh honest analysis and new ideas could change our direction.
