Topic: Some preliminary musings on Mariposa

You know, when I read this 'thriller' stuff of yours, I just shake me head at the legions of Grisham fans. This is, like, the real stuff - and, one could say, the descendant precursor to the stuff in Neuromancer. Goodness.

I totally identify with the view of genetics expressed by Plover, particuarly the 'pulling the stops'. Something I aspire to without such treatment as Mariposa, though I see that route as an imminent necessity.

Thanks! But I enjoy Grisham and a lot of other bestselling thriller writers. There's a lot to learn from a direct story line.

Oh sure. But is it SF? That's the measure I'm implying.

Not all of it, but a considerable portion, in my opinion--and not just Crichton.
