    We are now well into the 21st Century Many of the terrifying and blood curdling scenarios predicted by novelists in the 1960's and 1970's have come about or less The Africanized Killer Bees are in the United States the 2016 US presidential campaign is bizarre and surrealistic AIDS Ebola approximately eight billion Humans crowd this tiny planet nuclear power plants have experienced disasters Chernobyl Japan there is war in the Middle East that now involves American troops large scale and small scale terrorist acts are taking place in the United States on a monthly and weekly basis digital manipulation of imagery is now an everyday fact remote controlled aerial drones are toys and marijuana is becoming legal Heck 911 exceeded most novelists and screenwriters imaginations and yet life goes on as we adjust to the new normal Actually it could be that we're like the frog that doesn't realize the water temperature is increasing and eventually we're just cooked though evidently modern research shows that the frog will jump out as the temperature increases Whoops I'm digressing again sorry about thatAnyway my point is the future is now Many of the novels that were about the unthinkable are now passé Luckily we haven't yet experienced a nuclear war a mass die off courtesy of a meteor strike genetically engineered virus and as of 2016 the dead have not risen to eat our brains Whew So this summer I decided to read of few of the old apocalyptic themed novels to see how they compare to the real thing The Nightmare Factor was written by Thomas N Scortia During the seventies and early eighties Mr Scortia and his writing partner Frank M Robinson enjoyed some success writing disaster and apocalyptic themed novels Mr Scortia was an engineer who had worked for NASA until losing his job to the budget cuts of the post Apollo days and Mr Robinson was a science fiction writer and US Navy veteran WWII Korea Robinson had two degrees in the disparate fields of journalism and physics and real world political experience; he was Harvey Milk's speech writer believe it or not The two men definitely had than a passing familiarity with technologyengineering Human nature government the military and the red tape that those organizations generateThe Nightmare Factor is about a weaponized bacteria that is released at a convention of veterans in San Francisco The bacteria is designed to target only certain members of the population and once it's targets are dead ceases to kill Much of the novel focuses on the investigation and is obviously inspired by the outbreak of what is now known as Legionnaires Disease see 1976 Philadelphia Legionnaires' disease outbreak Throughout the novel there is a focus on governmental bureaucracy and how self serving politicians and bureaucrats hinder things and do not have the best interests of the populace at heart There is also a low grade anti military sentiment that runs throughout many of the books written by Scortia and Robinson Naturally some aspects of the novel are dated Newspapers are a major player and the government has an easier time controlling the flow of information The investigation takes place with very little media oversight and there is no mass panic for our heroes to deal with Good luck writing about such an event now without including a healthy dose of anarchy to accompany the tale Eventually the villain is revealed and the book ends with a warning An uneasy ending at best Well that's the plot The book itself is something of a yawner There is no real suspense no feeling that things are teetering on the brink of Doomsday and that's not a good thing for a novel that is supposed to be thrilling and disturbing Since the disease is engineered to kill specific targets and then cease to be a threat it's akin to a cruise missile than Captain Trips The protagonist spends almost as much time having sex with another female doctor and worrying about their relationship as he does actually working the case while being hindered by idiot and spineless bureaucrats and a nasty Army officer which results in a suspense novel that is boring and uninvolving notice how long it took me to get through it Perhaps because we have lived through so many events see above that were once the property of novelists there is no way an imagined event is going to seem that impressive Maybe the authors were worried that if the book was too technical they would lose the readers attention a criticism directed at The Andromeda Strain or maybe they didn't want to write an apocalyptic novel so they went to far in the other direction Well whatever their motivation they turned out an unengrossing novel Who would have thought that such a scenario would be a yawn

    If you’ve read this book you’re probably wondering why I even gave this book two stars It probably doesn't even deserve a one star I finished reading this book about a week ago for a high school project and now we have to make a book review and before I go any farther this wasn’t a very good book at all Anyways I was looking at how people reviewed this book and people seem to agree that it wasn’t a very good book too Maybe if there was suspense it just maybe may have been betterThis book in some ways is realistic than you probably think though For example controlling a virus is very much possible but not in the way this book interprets it In the book you had to be exposed to the virus twice then be exposed to Vanadium In reality you would only have to be exposed to the virus once But to have to be exposed to an outside material is also possible If the US wanted to it could launch a virus into any place it wants to and vice versa for other countriesThis book is or less a mediocrity While reading this book I didn't feel pulled into it It was in no way interesting at all and there were no suspenseful moments were the world might come to an end in one move The closet we got to suspenseful was towards the end when DrDoohan confronted one of enemies but even that ended in three pages Don’t even get me started on the actual plot if you can even call it a plot The book starts off in a police chase that isn’t too relevant to the story Then most of the book is just Doohan and the general running around like a chicken that just got their heads chopped off oh and Doohan’s relationship with another doctor named Suzanne Is this a pitiful semi romantic or a mediocrity The ending might have been worse than the book itself Doohan and the general get into a gun fight which ends in half a page and the virus factory blows up that ended in two pages Anyways I don’t want to ruin the entire ending if anyone even bothers reading the book

    Surprisingly not really about a pandemic like a single shot biological weapon The vast majority of the book follows the main character trying to figure out who developed the weapon and why An interesting read although very 70s so watch out for some dodgy opinions about women and foreigners

    Why of all books The Nightmare Factor ?A Ever since I read Coma1977 by Robin Cook I've been crazy about the concept of a Medical Thriller a genre or subgenre that Cook virtually invented with that book an which was faithfully adapted into a motion picture Unfortunately Cook whether by nature or by design never really followed up this unprecedented book with anything of significant note at last to this critic So I've turned to The Nightmare Factor1978 by the writing team of Thomas N Scortia and Frank M Robinson An you would consider this book a medical thriller?A Yes but it doesn't involve hospitals as a primary setting I've always had an affinity with hospitals and used to be employed in one Coma did for hospitals what AirportHailey 1968 did for airports which is another book I have reviewed in goodreads The hospital is the ideal setting for this kind of thriller but not the only one Tho hospitals are only peripheral in Nightmare Factor it develops a mystery and has enough excitement to keep the pages turning much like Coma The story involves the outbreak of a toxin that claims the lives of a large number of veterans after one of their conventions One bonus with stories like these is that you do not have to look up all the unfamiliar words to understand the thing That is the writers' job laughs Do ANY books with a medical theme interest you?A Yes they do I've read some really bottom level stuff no different than a cheap romance paperback; but I've also uncovered The Final Diagnosis1959 also by Arthur Hailey which looks to be the first actual medical drama I've run across There is also a non fiction book I am planning to read called Woman Surgeon1957 Most of this I've discovered only recently but will be spreading them out in my reading in the years ahead A couple medical romancedrama books that look to be at a literate enough level are Jennifer JamesRN1961 and Dr Holland's Nurse1963 There is also an Australian series about a doctorpilot that starts with Air Surgeon1962 by an author named Shane Douglas But the hospital medical thriller the one that really interests me most Hm You sound as if you have your reading cut out for you Would you recommend any medical TV shows to goodreaders?A Yes The 1980s program StElsewhere That's it?A That's it Why do you think the medical thriller has not had the best of fates?A I don't want to get into all that There has been attempts apparently at least to do with it There just hasn't been anything as dead on as Cook's bestseller I've even contemplated a couple of things myself maybe you will here about that someday I am at least determined to see that it is a genre that gets miles to the gallon than it has I see Is there anything you did not like about the books Coma and The Nightmare Factor?A Not much In Coma the building where the comatose are kept is described somewhat too science fictionally and I think it would have been neater to have it in some restricted sub level on the campus of buildings where Susan works preferably somewhere around Chicago since it seems way too many things are set in the rather sophomoric city of Boston Nightmare Factor was well and knowledgeably written even if it a little slower or less of a 'thriller' than its parent book OK Well thank you for the interview MoejooA Thank you for the uestions You're uite attractive are you single? interview ends here

    Ok so why the high mark I hear you say? Ok the reason for such high praise is not the fact that it's well written well researched or frighteningly plausible but the fact it was all these and was written in the 70s Medical dramas are not new look at Robin Cook but the idea of biological epidemics bioterrorism and generally Mother Nature being used as weapon feel like a product of the modern age not something from the age of flares and Dirty Harry Apart from a few references to models of cars the book could be set in any age and be just as chilling That to me is the sign of a great book
