I'm extremely busy and, unfortunately, pausing production on Species, at least for most of this month. If you sent me a donation in January and you want a refund, contact me through mackenmurphy.org, and I will be sure to send it back to you. My sincerest apologies.
Master of Puppets | Dr. Robert Plomin

He is a research professor at King's College London, best known for his work on twins.
