Started reading another Richard Preston book, this one a non-fiction work called "The Demon in the Freezer" (isbn 0375508562), about bioterrorism in the recent past and very possible future. He writes about the Anthrax attacks and possible Smallpox and other attacks. Scary stuff. Why do I subject myself to scary books, sad books, and books designed to make me paranoid? I dunno. I must enjoy it. Next on my to-read list is "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire", or "The Cabinet of Curiosities" by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. (Yes, Douglas Preston is the brother of Richard Preston, above.)
