Terry D. Johnson is a lecturer of bioengineering at the University of California, Berkeley. He is co-author of How to Defeat Your Own Clone and tweets, predictably, as @terrydjohnson.
Books by Terry’s bed include:
• Any Nero Wolfe novel. I’m with Wodehouse on this one—Rex Stout is endlessly re-readable, and that’s a high standard to meet.
• Genius: The Life and Science of Richard Feynman, by James Gleick. The best biography I’ve ever read!
• The latest Terry Pratchett. For me, Unseen Academicals, but only because I haven’t gotten hold of Snuff yet.
