Preface by Dr Barnaby Armpott, eminent mad scientist

The work of Professor Strangebutuntrue was first called to my attention when he hit me over the head with a copy of his first book - the Very Heavy Book of Science. I remember that day as if it was yesterday (hang on, it wa... ahem). After tying me up, he proceeded to force me to read every word he had written for the past five years at gunpoint, after which he said:

"There - you enjoyed that, didn't you? DIDN'T YOU?"

After responding in the affirmative, I managed to persuade him to release me, on condition that I wrote the preface for this website. So here it is. Now, will you let me go? Please?

I've never been married and I'm a teetotaller.

Barnaby Armpott, with a little encouragement from Professor Strangebutuntrue, Aug 2000
