ABSW member Nigel Hey is a jolly good fellow

The Council of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has elected ABSW member and nonfiction writer Nigel Hey as a Fellow for his "meritorious service in the communication of science through four decades of sustained accomplishment in public affairs, science writing, editing, and publishing".

His latest book, "The Star Wars Enigma," was published in hardback in 2006 by Potomac Books, and in paperback in October 2007.

Each year the AAAS council elects members whose "efforts on behalf of the advancement of science or its applications are scientifically or socially distinguished."

Nigel currently lives in Los Ranchos de Albuquerque, New Mexico. Like most "retired" science writers, he refuses to hang up his typewriters ribbons and now he runs his own business as writer and media consultant.
