Found this lovely little gem:

Cormac McCarthy is an excellent modern novelist with a very unique, direct writing style. If you like to be challenged by your reading, and haven’t read any of his novels, at least check one of ‘em out. Two films that I know of have been made of his books: “No Country For Old Men” and “The Road.” The movies are excellent, but obviously don’t capture the intensity of the language he uses in his writing.

Anyway, this is a lovely little article about how he participates in the Santa Fe Institute and contributes ideas across multidisciplinary fields in science.

Very interesting article. Now I need to read some of McCarthy’s novels.
