About Corben Duke

Born in a Yorkshire cave after my mother became stuck during a pot-holing holiday, I was left behind and raised by bats. Later I became a shack-dweller on Doom Beach, Bernard Island in the Outer Hebrides where I now live with my wife Mrs Duke and my two dogs, Crusher and Mr Fluffy.

Three years ago I found scientist Mark Roman wandering along my beach collecting and cataloguing brightly coloured pebbles. In return for a cup of hot seaweed tea, Mark gave me a copy of a fascinating book he had written speculating about the various rocks that might be found on Mars. Before burning it on the campfire for extra warmth (it’s cold on Bernard Island) I thought I’d better read it, and boy, was I glad I did. It reminded me of the story my great grandfather used to tell me about when he was a rocket scientist after WWII. Gramps claimed that a colleague had made a discovery enabling him to make the trip to Mars long before it became fashionable. As a young man I thought Grandpa Helmut was as crazy as a coconut which, in fact, he was. But Mark Roman’s book got me thinking about that old yarn and I decided to contact him with the idea of co-writing a story inspired by my great grandfather’s claim and Mark’s rock obsession. "The Worst Man on Mars" is that story.
