"Will glue you to your chair, just as surely as watching the televised walk on the moon... hideously plausible suspense."
Detroit Free Press

"One of the big books of the season... relentlessly suspenseful... for a hair-raising experience, read THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN!"
Pittsburgh Press

"Brims with authority, moves at white-hot speed.  Disconnect with doorbell, take the phone off the hook.  Once you start this gripper of a novel, you'll tolerate no interruption."
Buffalo News

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
