    Helena:

    Hello. Thank

    you for inviting me here

    to talk to

    you

    today. I

    ve wanted to work with

    animals ever since

    I was our

    or five yearsold. What really nterested

    me

    wasnot looking

    after catsor dogs ike other

    children,

    but lying in

    the long grasswatching nsects.

    That nterest

    in nature

    stayedwith me

    throughout my childhood

    and

    when fairly

    young, decided o

    becomea zoo keeper.

    In

    order to achievemy

    aim

    I had

    to work hard to get

    into university.

    I did biology, though for my

    job

    you

    can

    do a variety

    of different degreesas ong as hey have

    someconnection

    with animals things ike zoology

    obviously, and psychology

    and animal scienceare

    fine too.

    When you're

    appointedasa

    zoo

    keeper, ou generally

    work with

    just

    one species f animal. worked

    with the

    as

    hey'rean

    endangered

    pecies nd we

    havea

    special

    breeding

    programme

    n place.

    There are

    somedownsides

    o

    being a

    zoo keeper.We

    sometimes

    ave o work

    quite ong hours,sometimes

    ll

    night, especially

    n the

    hospital

    when an animal's

    ick,

    but

    I dont

    really mind that

    as t's

    part of the

    ob.

    What

    does

    get me,

    however,s the

    rain. It's

    quite hard to

    make

    yourself

    go outside

    when

    t's wet. Even

    he animalsdont

    like

    it

    My typical

    day usually

    startsaround

    sevenotlock.

    I guess he

    main task

    have

    n the morning

    is getting

    the

    food ready,

    don't clean

    out the enclosures.

    omeone

    else

    s responsible

    or that.

    Then, n the afternoon,

    I

    write

    up

    health reportsor assist

    with any

    medical

    procedures.On Saturdays

    nd

    Wednesdays

    also do

    talks,

    but that's

    only

    in the summer

    when we

    havea ot

    of

    visitors.

    In the winter

    it's obviously

    much

    quieter

    and

    I

    can

    get

    more nvolved

    n research

    rojects.

    The animals

    look after

    can be dangerous

    o

    you need

    to take

    care when

    you're

    around

    them. Early on

    in my

    career,

    monkey bit

    my finger but

    I only needed

    a few

    stitches.

    Someone

    lse worked

    with had

    his arm bitten

    by a tigea

    so ve been

    ucky

    That sort of thing

    doesnt

    happenvery often

    hough,

    'm

    pleased

    o say

    I

    dont

    have o carry

    a stick or

    anything o

    protect

    myself,

    but what

    you do have o

    have with you

    is

    a

    radio and

    f we

    get

    on

    that, someone'll

    ome

    unning

    immediately.

    t's always

    good to

    know that there are

    other

    people

    around

    o

    giveyou a hand fthings

    get

    difficult with

    an animal.

    The visitors are

    usually

    great,especiallyhe children.

    The

    people

    who

    do irritate

    me though are

    sometimes

    the teachers

    who bring

    their

    class o the

    zoo.They

    often

    dont spend

    enough ime talking

    to their

    pupils,

    explaining

    about

    eachanimal.

    think they see

    t asa

    day out

    really. It's a

    pity as t's a

    missed opportunity

    I always

    hink.

    As to

    the future,

    you do get attached

    o the animals

    youre

    looking after,

    so t would

    be hard

    for me to

    leave hem at the

    moment.

    Howeve there

    are a couple

    of things

    I might do

    in the future.

    've beenoffered

    the chance

    o go to China

    next

    spring o see

    how my

    animalsbehave

    n

    the

    wild.

    There's lsoa

    possibilityof

    going o the

    USA to work

    on a breeding

    project,

    but

    that's

    not

    going o happen

    or a

    few years et.

    questions.

    Interviewer:

    Jed

    Stevens,

    elcome o

    the studio.Now,

    you'vebeenwriting

    successful cience

    iction for almost

    three decades, ut

    at what agewould

    you recommend

    others o start writing

    it?

    |ed:

    That'sa good

    question.

    played

    aroundwith

    ideas

    right through

    my

    teens,

    which is fine

    for your own

    amusement,

    ut

    you

    ust

    dont have he

    knowledge

    or scope o take

    t on seriously ntil

    you'reout in the

    world. In your twenties s aboutright. Thereare a few

    writers

    who have urned

    to science

    iction much ater, n

    retirement, hough

    I see hat as

    isky

    commercially.

    Interviewer:

    So what

    ed

    you

    to science

    iction in the first

    place?

    fed:

    Well,

    t would be convenient

    o say t wasweeklydoses

    of Star

    Trek,which wason television

    when I wasa

    kid,

    but

    in

    actual

    act, couldnt

    stand t My elderbrother

    loved

    t and he istened o stuff

    on the radio too, but

    that

    didnt work

    for me

    -

    I

    wanted

    visual mages o stimulate

    my imagination,and

    I found them

    in

    a colourful

    comic

    strip that

    I

    consumed

    ver)'

    weekwithout fail.

    Interviewer:

    And as a writer,

    s there an1'thing

    n

    particular hat hasbeenhelpful to you?

    |ed:

    To create

    my stories, o

    you mean? guess 've

    got

    a

    lot from locations

    where 've spent

    some ime

    -

    I've

    never

    ived n one

    place or more than

    five years,and

    unusual

    environments

    nspire

    me. My earlywork asa

    programmerwas

    he opposite,

    no help at all, so

    I left in

    the

    end o

    follow my dream.

    Living where do

    now I'm

    in touch with a

    ot of scientists,

    ut they're

    generally oo

    focusedon reality

    o be useful o

    my brand of

    fantasy

    Interesting

    people

    hough.

    lnterviewer:

    You'vewritten

    25 novels,

    but what was he

    very

    first publicationof

    yours o comeout?

    fed:

    It was

    hard at the

    start,

    you

    know

    ..'

    I desperately

    wanted o

    get

    published

    and I

    remember

    tried

    with

    a short story,

    but everyone

    said they'd

    only

    consider

    a whole collection,

    so hat

    wasout.

    Then

    I decided

    o

    entera competition

    or first

    novelsbut

    I missed he

    deadline.

    Im

    still

    polishing hat

    No, t was a modestpiece n a magazine bout ife in

    other

    .. from small

    beginnings,

    h?

    Interviewer: Well,

    you

    obviously

    found

    the magic

    ingredient

    And what's he

    attraction

    now? 'm sure

    you

    dont

    really need he

    money.

    |ed:

    It's

    always

    been he same

    hrill. Science

    iction allows

    you

    to find fresh angles

    on

    how people ive and

    You mentioned earnings,

    but they

    I m

    not into that

    sideof the business.

    Interviewer: |ed, fyou look back overyour 30 yearsn

    the business,

    syou

    put it, what haschanged

    n science

    fiction writing?

    fed:

    Strangely

    nough,

    given all the

    technological

    rogress

    weVeseensince he 80s,

    t's not the storylines

    hemselves

    that

    have altered,but

    the storytelling

    itself

    -

    that's

    improvedhugelF n my view.

    The other aspect

    hat

    some

    people

    comment

    on

    is that the novels

    havebecome

    shorterover he

    years,

    but

    I

    dont

    think there's ny

    Elena Richmann and she's n

    actress rom

    Canada.

    She's

    ncredibly

    lively

    so she

    should be fun to

    quiet, so we'll have o see.

    Anyway,

    I havent

    noticed any bad

    habitsyet You

    Dear

    Lynne,

    I thought

    I'd write and tell

    you all

    my latest news. We've

    got new neighbours.

    You remember

    told you that wehad

    a large

    family living next door?

    Well, the

    father has got a

    new

    ob

    in

    New York and

    they moved

    out last week.

    They

    were

    quite fun, but a bit

    noisy.

    They often used o

    have arge

    family

    parties and the

    young children

    would run around

    shouting.

    Their

    parentsand heir

    grandpaand

    grandma

    were

    nice

    though.

    The new neighboursarea family with identical twin girls,

    aged 15. They're

    very

    pretty and, so

    far,

    seem

    quite friendly.

    I hope 'll be able

    o tell them

    apart.

    Their dad cameover

    yesterday

    o say

    hello and wdre

    going to

    have hem over

    for

    a barbeque

    next weekend.

    'll write and

    let you know

    if my

    naturally academic t schooland,

    n fact, he had

    to

    leave

    school

    at the ageof 14because

    is family

    couldnt

    afford

    to

    pay he $80 uition fees.

    His family were armersand hey wanted

    William to

    become

    one oo but William

    had

    ambitions

    o

    be a

    mechanic.This looked doubtful becausehe family had

    no money and so William

    had to help out in the fields.

    He still

    had

    some

    ree ime though so he would spend

    it in the local

    ibrary. Therehe found two textbooks

    -

    Explaining Physics nd UsingEnergy and from

    them, William

    found out all abouthow you could get

    electricity rom windmills.

    William'svillagewas

    very poor

    but

    it did have

    a

    lot

    of

    wind.

    He

    could see hat electricitywould solvea

    number

    of

    problems or his family and,bestof all,

    he

    would be

    able o

    have

    a

    light in his room so he could readat night.

    William could see hat having a windmill to make

    electricity would mean reedom or himself and his family.

    The electricitywould be able o

    quickly pump

    water o

    his family's ieldsof

    maize,

    which would allow hem to

    grow more food.

    He decided o build a

    windmill near his house.His

    father was oo busy so

    he

    asked

    his

    cousin o

    help him

    and hey spentsome

    ime trying to find

    the

    necessary

    parts.

    Luckily, hey

    managed

    o

    get hold

    of a bic)'cle

    someone ad thrown awayand which they used o form

    the basisof the windmill. They mainly used he chain

    and he dynamo.For the windmill blades hey usedan

    old

    plaslle pipe

    which they cut

    in

    two and

    heated

    over

    hot coals o make lat. This all took a ong time but the

    resultwasworth it.

    The windmill was a

    great

    success nd currently the

    village has hree ofthem and the villagerscan all go to

    watch TV aswell as enjoy all the other benefitselectricity

    hasbrought. William is now older and s keen o build

    windmills across he whole of his country. William's

    family can now harvestother cropsbesidesmaizesuch

    as

    pelatocs.

    The

    people

    n the village are much healthier

    in fictionr

    it's vital

    For me,

    t's

    something

    hat

    you need

    o live.

    As I love

    writing

    I spenda

    lot of time

    at my

    like to start

    around 9.30

    at university,

    but

    my

    tutor

    advised

    not to

    the work

    involved.

    When

    I graduated,

    approached

    who were

    Anna:

    peopleof

    my age

    would

    be

    the

    strongest

    group

    in favour

    ofebooks,

    but

    in fact,

    hey

    had rather

    mixed

    mainly

    due

    o cost

    ssues

    n the

    hardware

    needed.

    that

    comes

    in the

    all is

    fact that

    OK,

    Conan

    and

    his character

    he

    detective

    Sherlock

    Holmes,

    who

    I really

    ike

    reading

    about.ConanDoylewasborn in 1859 n Edinburgh,

    Scotland,

    nd

    was

    greatly

    nfluenced

    by

    his

    mother's

    ove

    of storytelling.

    However,

    ather

    than

    studying

    iterature,

    from

    1876

    o

    1881

    he did

    medicine

    at the

    University

    of

    Edinburgh.

    Although

    Conan

    Doyle

    began

    writing

    short

    stories

    during

    his

    time

    at university,

    t wasnt

    until

    he

    had

    graduated

    nd

    set

    up

    a

    medical

    practice

    n

    London

    that

    he began

    o

    write

    seriously.

    his

    was

    because

    e

    wasrlt

    a

    particularly

    successful

    octor

    and

    had very

    few

    patients.

    His

    main

    inspiration

    or the

    character

    f

    Sherlock

    Holmes

    was

    a

    plgfessQr

    who

    had

    taught

    him at

    Edinburgh.

    Another

    inspiration

    or

    his writing

    was

    a

    visit Conan

    Doyle

    had

    made

    at

    the

    age

    of 15

    o a

    wax

    museum

    n

    London.

    There

    were

    wax

    models

    of

    well-known

    actors

    and

    singers

    here,

    but

    it was

    he

    models

    of

    famous

    murderers

    hat

    had the

    greatest

    mpact

    on

    him.

    The

    character

    Sherlock

    Holmes

    irst

    appeared

    n

    1887'

    not

    in

    a novel

    but

    asa

    short

    story

    called

    A Study

    n Scarlet

    n

    a

    Holmes

    was

    a

    who

    ran an

    rom

    his

    and shared

    of

    his work

    with

    his

    friend

    Dr

    Watson'

    From the

    books

    Conan

    Doyle

    wrote,

    I've

    earnt

    that

    Holmeshad anexpertknowledgeof chemistry,but wasnt

    quite so

    good

    at

    biologY.

    Sherlock

    Holmes

    was

    one

    of

    the

    first

    detectives

    n

    fiction

    to

    make

    use

    of

    forensic

    medicine.

    He

    was

    particularly

    good at

    dentifying

    footprints

    at

    a crime

    scene'

    These

    techniques

    were

    airly

    new

    when

    Conan

    Doyle

    was

    writing,

    but

    they

    later

    formed
