Transfection

“I recently bought and read Transfection and I’m happy to say it is terrific, and well worth the 99 cents.” — JA Konrath, bestselling author of The List.

This short story is currently only available as an e-book. However, don’t forget that you can read e-books on any computer, tablet, or laptop, and on most phones, with this free software.

Transfection

Molecular biologist Dr. Carl Peters is under pressure on two fronts: his research grants are disappearing and his marriage is falling apart. But when medical researchers discover that genetically modified animal feed has tainted the food chain, he finally gets the funding he always dreamed of.

Dr. Peters discovers the reason behind the cancer link with GM food, but it’s so crazy, he barely believes it himself.

Transfection is a 5,700 word, 23-page old-school science fiction story, starring a molecular biologist who makes a discovery that shocks the world, only to find his life under threat. It takes in militant vegans, corruption, homelessness, university politics, radiation, the celebrity-obsessed media, and a shadowy conspiracy.

You can read a sample here, and you can read the story behind the striking cover here.

Transfection was released on May 21, 2011, another short story, but this time with an old-school science fiction vibe. It’s available for $0.99 from AmazonAmazon UK, Amazon DE, Amazon FR, Barnes & NobleSmashwords, Sony, Diesel, as well as Apple (through both iTunes and the iBookstore).

Praise for Transfection:

“I laughed out loud at some of the antics as I was reading. Transfection is well worth the price-tag…yet another well written and, dare I say again, thought provoking, tale from David Gaughran.” –Heather L. Faville, Doubleshot Reviews

“Well written…a polished product.” — TC, Booked Up Reviews

“Very strong images…a haunting quality…I totally did not expect that ending. I really didn’t see it coming…I recommend this to people who enjoy well written sci-fi.” — LE Olteano, Butterfly Books
