The Andromeda Strain Is on Tonight

A&E’s reenvisioned Andromeda Strain is on tonight at 9/8 Central. The story has been updated for the 21st century. Though it’s been somewhat panned, I’ll be watching just because the novel scared the crap out of me as a kid.

Come to think if it, I used to love all that “biological thriller” stuff. Richard Preston’s The Hot Zone comes to mind, as well as a MacGuyver episode rip-off of Andromeda Strain that kept me from falling asleep for a week. Anyone have suggestions for more recent novels in the genre?
