Ransom Stephens writes novels with characters that make you laugh and cry and take you away for a while. He once searched for the Holy Grail in Cornwall and Wales but settled for a cracked coffee mug. His books are based on simple, uncomplicated topics like science vs religion in The God Patent, technology vs environmentalism in The Sensory Deception, oligarchy vs anarchy in The 99% Solution, and love vs money in Too Rich to Die, but in his latest, The Book of Bastards, he goes back to the old standard, good vs evil, and offers readers what they always welcome, a story of bawdiness washed down with a sip of moral justice.
His first popular science book, The Left Brain Speaks The Right Brain Laughs: a look at the neuroscience of innovation & creativity, is an irreverent take on how our brains work and how we can work them better.
