Publications: Nonfiction

This is the list of my nonfiction works. Most of them are popular science articles focused usually on some features of biology (my field of study) or space exploration (my longterm hobby). Interviews are listed separately, below the rest. You can also search for interviews right at this site (not yet listed below).

I’ve also written a number of reviews and short essays on genre topics for the web version of Czech SF magazine XB-1. I won’t list these at this page but if you’re interested in them, click here.
