About

Henry Gee was awarded a BA in zoology and genetics from the University of Leeds in 1984 before going on to complete a PhD in zoology at the University of Cambridge in 1991;[1] before finishing his doctorate, he joined the staff of Nature in 1987 where he is now a senior editor of biological sciences.[2] At Nature he devised and edits the "Futures" science-fiction series for which he won the Best Publisher award from the European Science Fiction Society in 2005.[3]

Aside from his work in biology, Henry Gee has gained notoriety in the Tolkien community as the author of The Science of Middle-earth, the editor of Mallorn, and the special correspondent on science matters - under the pseudonym of "Olog-Hai"[1] - at TheOneRing.net. In particular, as editor of Mallorn Gee has received both praise and criticism from members of The Tolkien Society due to the editorial changes which he has made to the journal.
