The runaway biotech bestseller, WIRED, was not only a New York Times and USA Today bestseller, but the bestselling Kindle novel of 2011 in two major categories—science fiction and technothrillers—an unprecedented achievement.
Now, as the WIRED sequel, AMPED, climbs the charts to glowing reviews, the eBook version of WIRED is being offered on Amazon and Barnes & Noble for only $3.95. The author of these books, Douglas E. Richards, has been frequently compared to the late Michael Crichton for his ability to weave action, suspense, and well-researched science into riveting page-turners.
Richards has a master's degree in genetic engineering and was a biotechnology executive for many years. "When I wrote WIRED," he explains, "I asked myself the question: what if it were possible to boost human IQ to immeasurable levels for short periods of time? What capabilities might this confer? What changes to attitude and personality? Would this bring out our better angels or unleash our darker sides, causing us to grow ever more drunk with power?" Both WIRED and AMPED answer these questions in a way that bestselling author Boyd Morrison calls, "action-packed, breathtaking, and mind-blowing."
According to SFRevu founder, Ernest Lilley, "WIRED has a twisty plot, big ideas, and nonstop action and intrigue. It'll have you guessing until the very end."
