Brace yourself for more biotech backlash...

Micheal Crichton has just released a new book - Next - that does for biotechnology what State of Fear did for global warming. And to hype the book (which this post lamely aids), he has a "pseudo-website". See it here.

The guy can write, although his recent books are obvious screenplays - not novels. But he plays fast and loose with facts. It will be interesting to see those who hailed him as a hero in the global warming debate but who will be horrified to see him send up biotech now.

Reviews here, here, and here. I may read it soon, if I get it for Christmas.
