About this title

Synopsis:

In a radioactive, nuclear-ravaged future, Samson is born into a tribe of peaceful yet desperate people struggling to survive in the desolate city of N'Yark. Surrounded by hungry, wild creatures - creatively mutated and brought to life by Thorne and subsequent artists - and the more savage, selfish remnants of humanity, life is precarious at best for the tribe until Samson displays amazing powers. Discovering that young Samson is a mutant himself, his mother trains Samson to value life, and on her deathbed Samson vows "to protect the weak from the powerful, the good from the evil!" After being mauled by a vicious beast, Samson is later nursed to health by the beautiful Sharmaine, and he joins her and her scientist father, Mindor, in trying to unveil the powerful secrets of their past while surviving in a future filled with ridiculously transformed animals and hostile barbarians. Want a little Herbie with your Mad Max? These apocalyptic tales have more than a little humor mixed in with their themes of destruction and human folly.

He later joined the faculty of Chelsea College, University of London, which later became part of King's College London. Here, he worked on developing innovative assessment schemes in mathematics before accepting leadership of the King's College Mathematics Education Program.

For three years, Dr. Wiliam served as the academic coordinator of the Consortium for Assessment and Testing in Schools, which developed a variety of assessments for the national curriculum of England and Wales. He then returned to King's College to serve as Dean of the School of Education before being promoted as assistant principal of the university.

He coauthored a major review of research evidence on formative assessment with Paul Black and has worked with many teachers in the United Kingdom and United States on developing formative assessment practices to support learning.
