By putting the caterpillar in a matchbox, he has just changed his life forever. Or till it ends. Whichever comes first.

Graham Paint is a downsizing consultant, and sick of it. One morning he misses his bus when he stops to put a strange caterpillar in a matchbox. As the bus passes he’s shocked to spot himself inside. Like Schrödinger’s Cat in the famous quantum thought experiment, the caterpillar's spawned parallel possibilities. This comic novel explores Graham’s search for a better life among the various overlapping alternatives.

Schrödinger's Caterpillar
A stupid book for brainy people

Hot News

The audio version is read by Zane himself. What else did you expect from such a monstrous ego? But he is a very funny author. And this is quantum physics made easy!

He did used to read the news on the BBC, so he does have the fruity tones if he can stay sober long enough to focus.

Sequel started

The sequel to Schrödinger's Caterpillar is to be Einstein's Wormhole.

Where Schrödinger's Caterpillar explored an alternate parallel universe the new book sees Graham setting off through time. Chances are it'll take a good year or so to finish (unless Zane time travels) so sign up below if you'd like to be kept in the loop nearer publication day.
