The Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton is $1.99 today at Kindle and Kobo US

I read Michael Crichton’s first book (writing as himself, at least), The Andromeda Strain, when I was a kid, shortly after it came out, and I remember it was pretty scary then. I re-read it not too long ago and it was still scary now, since a good part of what made it scary was not just the details of the “bug”, or the way old computer systems used to fail (although new ones fail too), but the human nature involved – and, for better or for worse, that doesn’t change much. I’ve read some of Crichton’s other books since, and although some of them are good, I didn’t like any of them as much as this one. Anyway, long intro to say that The Andromeda Strain is $1.99 at Kindle US today (Feb 19,2021) as part of the Daily Deal, matched at Kobo US.
