Martyn Rhys Vaughan was fascinated with tales of other worlds and other modes of being from a very early age. One of his earliest memories is of listening to the classic BBC radio serial “Journey Into Space.” He remembers avidly reading and being both captivated and terrified by the ‘Classics Illustrated’ versions of H. G. Wells’ “Time Machine” and “War of The Worlds” and one of his earliest purchases of books was the actual novel by Wells.
His education was broadly scientific leading him into laboratories in various private sector companies where he worked with iron and steel and organic chemical production.
A change of career led him into working for the British Government with responsibilities for economic statistics, including contributions to the British Balance of Payments data.
He remains a passionate advocate for the scientific view of the world and deplores the move to ‘alternative facts’ and the resurgence of outdated beliefs and ideas long thought confined to the waste bin. In particular, he is concerned about the existential threat of climate change, which forms a key section of his novel “Quantum Exile.”
