“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.


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.
