Love, loss and competitive tree-climbing are preoccupying the hero of Coelacanth. This is a boy-meets-girl story with a twist, a tumble, several daring somersaults from the branches, and the discovery that love - like the coelacanth fish that was thought to be extinct - can lurk in the very darkest depths. In Not Everything is Significant , we meet a biographer who is suffering from writers' block and a footter who is a stickler for detail - together they're pondering the meaning of a diary that arrived mysteriously through the post which appears to predict the future and prompts some very tricky questions about the nature of destiny.Finally, in Supercollider for the Family a husband and wife each face a challenge: he to build a 'supercollider' small eugh for household use, she to complete a tightrope walk around the world. Their missions take us from a top-secret particle physics lab deep underground, complete with doors that go 'ssh' and women in catsuits, to the vertigius heights of a wire above a canyon, suspended like a slender silver thread between soil and sky.
