Description


En Parque Jurásico Michael Crichton nos enseñó un nuevo mundo terrorífico. En Micro nos descubre un universo demasiado minúsculo para verlo, pero demasiado peligroso para ignorarlo.
 
En la densa selva de Oahu, Hawai, un grupo de científicos de los laboratorios Nanigen MicroTechnologies se dedica a estudiar las drogas naturales presentes en trillones de microorganismos y miles de bacterias con la intención de aprovechar todas las aplicaciones comerciales posibles. Con este fin, Nanigen ficha a siete estudiantes posgraduados para trabajar en sus laboratorios de Hawai. Allí participarán en descubrimientos microbiológicos que jamás hubieran podido siquiera imaginar. Pero una vez en la selva de Oahu, los siete se encontrarán inmersos en un mundo hostil tan peligroso como sorprendente. El único recurso que podrán utilizar será sus conocimientos especializados, que les ayudarán a encauzar las fuerzas de la propia naturaleza.
 
Una novela sensacional, terminada por el prestigioso escritor científico Richard Preston, Micro es un apasionante thriller sobre el fascinante futuro de la microbiología.

About the Author


Michael Crichton (1942 2008) was a writer and filmmaker best known as the author of Jurassic Park and the creator of the TV series ER. Crichton sold more than 200 million books, becoming one of the most popular writers in the world. His novels have been translated into thirty-eight languages, and thirteen have been made into films. While studying at Harvard Medical School, Crichton wrote novels under the pseudonyms John Lange, Jeffery Hudson, and Michael Douglas (with brother Douglas Crichton). He published ten books under these names, including A Case of Need, which won the Edgar Award for Best Mystery in 1969. In contrast to the carefully researched techno-thrillers that ultimately brought him to fame, the Lange and Hudson books are high-octane novels of suspense and action. Written with remarkable speed and gusto, these novels provided Crichton with both the means to graduate at the top of his class and the freedom to remain anonymous in case his writing career ended before he obtained his medical degree.

Through the years, Richard Prestor has amassed a fascinating collection of historic photographs of Milwaukee. This tribute to the author's home town is not meant to be a definitive history of the city, but rather a light-hearted look at the people who made Milwaukee's history. On many personal levels, you will see how people lived, worked, and entertained themselves. Join Mr. Prestor on a fascinating visual journey that brings new life to Milwaukee's history.
