You can meet Scott Sigler, one of the best science fiction writers of our day, this coming Thursday, July 8, at 7:30pm, right here at Magers & Quinn.
"Michael Crichton may be gone, but he has a worthy successor in Scott. This book takes thriller and science fiction conventions and slams them together to make something new and fascinating."--Simon R. Green, author of The Good, the Bad, and the Uncanny and Agents of Light and Darkness
Sigler will be reading from his latest novel, Ancestor, a chilling a tale of genetic experimentation gone awry. On a remote island in the Canadian Arctic, PJ Colding leads a group of geneticists who have discovered this holy grail of medicine--life-saving transplant organs at almost no cost. By reverse-engineering the genomes of thousands of mammals, Colding's team has dialed back the evolutionary clock to re-create humankind’s common ancestor. The method? Illegal. The result? A computer-engineered living creature, an animal whose organs can be implanted in any person, and with no chance of transplant rejection.
