Biographical Note: Richard Morris (1939- ) began to work as a coordinator for the Committee of Small Magazine Editors and Publishers (COSMEP) in 1968 and eventually became its executive director, but his main career in life was as an author of works that popularized and clarified major concepts in science and philosophy. "A scientist who abandoned his discipline in the 1970s to write poetry, Morris later returned to science to write books on physics and cosmology, which is concerned with the birth, development and possible death of the universe."* His books are praised for their layperson's approach and enjoyable discussions of complex issues.
