Harry Tuttle

Hello and welcome! This is the home and playground of Harry Tuttle; Modern Cave Dweller, Part enigma, part machine, mostly confused and trapped in modern life.

I am a Science Fiction writer. I am also a scientist, so  I can say that I write Science Fact. Simply put,

I’m a writer.

I currently working on my first novels. Yes, there is a plural there. And yes, I know how important it is to just finish… I also have a pile of flash fiction and several short stories that will eventually be released into the wild in some way, shape or form. One day. I say one day, as I’m not in so much of a rush and I still have a lot to learn; we all work at our own pace so be patient with me.

Who is Harry Tuttle?
This is a pseudonym to avoid confusion with my professional persona. As a scientist I have over 70 publications as well as being involved in science strategy and policy. I’d like to keep the two worlds separate for the moment.

Why the Blue Brain?
I would love to have one of those beautiful photos to share with you all, but that would defeat the point of using a pseudonym.

Why The Modern Cave Dweller?
The MCD is a long standing joke/statement about how I see myself in the modern world. If you search for Harry Tuttle MCD you also avoid confusing me with other Harry Tuttles.

Why Harry Tuttle?
Why? I came into this game for the action, the excitement. Go anywhere, travel light, get in, get out, wherever there’s trouble, a man alone. Yes, Terry Gilliam’s Brazil is synonymous with this famous character, but the Tuttle name has a long history in film and TV, usually as a somewhat enigmatic character, including appearances in MASH, although quite often, only as cameos.
