Description - The Never-Ending Days of Being Dead by Marcus Chown

In Chown's most ambitious book to date he sets out to answer some of the most provocative questions of today: Where did we come from? What the hell are we doing here? Is Elvis alive and kicking in another space domain? What's beyond the edge of the Universe? Did aliens build the stars? Can we live forever? "The Never-Ending Days of Being Dead" is a fascinating and delightful popular science book, and an eye-opening look at the nature of reality and the place of life in the universe.

Author Biography - Marcus Chown

Marcus Chown is an award-winning writer and broadcaster. Formerly a radio astronomer at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, he is now cosmology consultant of the weekly science magazine New Scientist. Marcus's first popular science book, Afterglow of Creation - runner-up for the prestigious Rhone-Poulenc Prize - was published to much acclaim in 1994. The Magic Furnace, Marcus's second book, was published in Britain in 1999. In Japan it was chosen as one of the Books of the Year by Asahi Shimbun, the world's biggest newspaper and, in the UK, the Daily Mail called it 'a dizzy page-turner with all the narrative devices you'd expect to find in Harry Potter.' His third book, The Universe Next Door, was published in 2002. 'An exuberant book - a parallel universe where science is actually fun,' wrote the Independent. Marcus lives in London with his wife, Karen.
