Sir Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter: the 'Long Earth' multiverse (Engineering and Technology Magazine, IET, 12 August 2013)

Some of the paragraph attribution in the online version of the article is not particularly clear because they haven't boldened the magazine's "question" paragraphs as they have in the printed version but all the "E&T" sections (except the first one which is helpfully labelled E&T) are single paragraphs ending in question marks immediately prior to an SB- or TP-attributed answer whilst everything else in the Q&A part of the article is SB and TP and their answers are sometimes multiple paragraphs.

NB I'm an IET member so I have an automated login but I think you may have to register for the IET website in order to see the article properly.
