A colleague of mine in the Science Fiction Research Association (SFRA) wrote today: "... working on a linked English class with Chemistry and am wondering if anyone knows of some good stories with heroic chemists or chemists as positive figures (fiction and non-fiction)? I'm teaching Carson's Silent Spring, and would like to balance that a bit with a more positive story or two."
If you have a suggestion, please add a Comment with Title & Author. If in a collection of stories, do include the title of the volume as well. Or, you may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org as you prefer.
