On Monique Golay:
Born from a mad scientist for a father, the physicist Marcel J. E. Golay, and quite a nice Dutch mother, I am always surrounded by scientists, wherever I go, so I better know something about Mechanics. An anecdote on my teaching sciences to young people: I have been tutoring Descriptive Geometry to a 16-year old student. Sweating on a geometrical demonstration, I asked help from one of my physicist-friends and he said: “Do they do such things in their two first years of College? It’s very complicated and I’ve never had to do such a thing. My solution would be to convert everything into coordinates and resolve the problem with linear algebra (and with a computer). That’s modern sciences (and mathematics).” But I assure my readers of “Lite the Sorcyair” that all they need to know is about the great many planets, moons, and suns in the Universe to which I’ve added wizards, fairies, and devils. And alien ants.
