What will be our Virus X?
Looking for a thriller to read? It may have been published ten years ago, but Frank Ryan's Virus X: Tracking the New Killer Plagues is exactly that—what's even more terrifying is that it is non-fiction. If you're interested, you can read my review of it, published a few days ago on Scienceline.
I am a freelance science journalist based in New York City -- in other words, I live in the most expensive city in the world without a steady income. I have written for publications including Seed, The Scientist, the Boston Globe, Wired and Scientific American. Check out my website at http://www.melindawenner.com.
