The Professor is back and this time he may be going too far.
In this set of stories he faces serious challenges, from the environment and the weather to his own feelings. The results of his inventions are, as usual, unpredictable. How could he have known that it would be a bad idea to use a black hole as a rubbish bin? What could possibly go wrong with a love machine, intended to make people kinder and more generous? Why should you avoid tinkering with the climate?
This book, which is aimed at children of all ages, is intended to inspire developing minds. The Professor is a fictional character and the adventures are completely made up. Yet, the various episodes draw on ideas from science and the modern world. They show that you can have a lot of fun with science and technology, especially if you allow for a little bit of creative mis-interpretation.
From Professor Nils Andersson, an authority on matters of gravity and the extremes of our weird and wonderful Universe.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I don’t think it is very different at all. Perhaps you need a better story if you are writing for kids. They have no reason to stick with a story if it isn’t good.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Go ahead! You know you can do it! If you have a book in you it will come out, one way or another. you might as well let it.
Nils Andersson was born in 1964 in a small town in Sweden. He grew up, as people tend to do, formed a range of opinions about this, that and the other, and eventually went to Uppsala University to study physics. Unable to contemplate a real job, he left his homeland after finishing his PhD in 1991. Having roamed the world for a few years, he settled in the United Kingdom where he now works as a professor of Mathematics (not a real job!). He has always loved books, in all shapes and sizes, and probably reads a bit too much for his own good. Most of the stuff he writes can be found in science journals, and tends to be awfully technical (perhaps boring) on things like dead stars, black holes and waves of gravity. This has made him wonder what it would be like to write a “real” book. Maybe one day he will find out…
Nils is convinced that he used to be able to fly when he was little. He has a very clear memory of what it feels like to float up in the air and do somersaults and stuff. Sadly, he now understands how gravity works and absolutely can’t fly.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I simply felt compelled to write another set of stories about the Professor. There was still a lot of science to misinterpret in an entertaining way. Lots of questions to ask!
