Ian Cook was born in Devon in the UK, grew up in Hertfordshire and took a degree in crop science at the University of Reading. During his subsequent worldwide travels, he became intrigued by the apparent universal mythology associated with red hair and acquired more knowledge about the subject than is strictly necessary for everyday social purposes. He lives in West London with his wife, Maggie.

Redhead (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: A must-read for all redheads and their admirers as well as fans of science fiction and horror. Redheads have always attracted attention: desired, envied, pitied, ridiculed, even persecuted. Now the sacrifices begin... In 1921, in the ruined city of Carthage near Tunis, a red-haired French archaeologist hears the cries of long-dead children as he stumbles upon a legendary sacrificial site. Shortly afterwards, he is viciously attacked by a hawk. Back in present-day London, flame-haired journalist Rebecca Burns investigates strange and macabre events which seem to be directed against redheads worldwide. Together with young astrophysicist Dr Jim Cavendish and Professor Larry Burton, an authority on ancient civilisations, she is drawn into an age-old feud...a feud that threatens the very existence of redheads everywhere.
