The Number One international bestselling author of Jurassic Park, Congo and Sphere blends fact and fiction to create a near-future where genetic engineering opens up a whole new world of terrifying, page-turning possibilities… Bonus feature: Includes a special Q&A session between Michael Crichton and Jonathan Burnham, publisher of HarperCollins.

Is your loved one missing some body parts? Are blondes becoming extinct? Is everyone at your dinner table of the same species? It's 2006: do you know who all your children are? Do you know humans and chimpanzees differ in only 400 genes? And why does an adult human being resemble a chimp foetus? There's a new genetic cure for drug addiction – is it worse than the disease? Ever want to design your own pet? Change the stripes on the fish in your aquarium? Ever think to sell your body fat – or donate it to charity? Or sell your eggs and sperm online for thousands of dollars? Did you know one fifth of all your genes are owned by someone else? Come to think of it, could you and your family be pursued cross country just because you happen to have certain genes in your body?

Welcome to our genetic world. Fast, furious, and out of control. This is not the world of the future – it's the world right now. Most of the events in this book have already happened. And the rest are just around the corner.

Get used to it.

Review:

Praise for ‘Next’ (HB):

'A wonderful farrago, energetically stirring up a lot of scientific, medical, business and legal issues… marvellous.' Evening Standard

‘A satirical black-comedy thriller… Crichton writes likes Tom Wolfe on speed… completely brilliant… Crichton’s treatise on how breakthroughs in genetic science have been hijacked by science is anything but dull… top form.’ Daily Mail

Praise for State of Fear:

‘A gripping, impeccably researched thriller… we don’t get much politically engaged fiction these days. Here is a fine example.’ Evening Standard

‘Exciting… a master storyteller.’ Sunday Telegraph

‘Terrific fun. The pages whip by.’ Independent

‘An enviromental adventure of truly global proportions… it’s intelligent, readable and guaranteed to get the grey matter going.’ Mirror

‘An action-packed page-turner’ Daily Mail

‘An entertaining thriller stimulating debate’ Time Out

From the Publisher:

Devishly clever, NEXT blends fact and fiction into a
breathless tale of a new world where nothing is as it seems and a set of
new possibilities can open at every turn.
NEXT challenges our sense of reality and notions of morality. Balancing
the comic and bizarre with the genuinely frightening and disturbing, NEXT
shatters our assumptions and revels shocking new choices where we least
expect.
The future is Closer Than You Think.
