About Join New York Times Bestselling Author Scott Sigler as he reads from his hard-science thriller Contagious. The sequel to Infected, Contagious follows the spread of a pathogen as it changes normal people into raving mad killers infected by sentient alien parasites. Sigler writes scientifically accurate, action-oriented thrillers all based in real world science: no magic, zombies, vampires, or supernatural elements. In Contagious, he takes a similar concept of a virus hijacking the cellular reproductive system to the macro organic level, and uses it to terraform the human body: reprogramming biologic maintenance systems to turn the infected into human factories that create complex organic Von Neumann Machines. By taking what our bodies do every day (cellular reproduction) and adding robotic self-assembly made biologic, Sigler places science fiction squarely in the realm of real world science.
