Review: Old School SciFi

Title: Transfection
Author: David Gaughran
Genre: SciFi/Thriller (short story)
Format: ebook


I recently finished reading the new short story by David Gaughran. I quite literally read it on the tube home Friday. It was fast. It was good. Read on...

Molecular biologist Dr. Carl Peters is under pressure on two fronts: his research grants are disappearing and his marriage is falling apart. But when medical researchers discover that genetically modified animal feed has tainted the food chain, he finally gets the funding he always dreamed of.

Dr. Peters discovers the reason behind the cancer link with GM food, but it's so crazy, he barely believes it himself.

His story takes on militant vegans, corruption, homelessness, university politics, radiation, the celebrity-obsessed media, and a shadowy conspiracy.

TRANSFECTION is a brand-new story, exclusively available as an e-book.

Honestly, I'm not a short story person, but this one totally reeled me in. I couldn't wait to see what happened. It was definitely old school style, which was fun, but different than what I'm used to. And the ending? TOTALLY CREEPED ME OUT!

Like seriously. I'm still dwelling on it days later. Dave, you and I need to have some words...

Transfection is worth the price at just 70 pence (Or 99 cents for those of you in the US.).

  1. I also enjoyed it. But I am too tough to be creeped out. That's my story.

  2. And you're sticking to it? lol

  3. Where would I be without stubbornness?

    And nice cover, btw.

  4. Heh. Probably about the same place I'd be.

    And thanks. Really like it. Just needs a couple small tweaks and think it'll be perfect.

  5. Yeah, I was creeped out too. I work in a lab and made the mistake of reading it while at work.

    It's been about 10 days, now, and I still think about it. XD
