THE FEAR INDEX by Robert Harris in perspective

The Fear Index: The lesson to be learned: How to take a used subject and turn into a very readable novel. The story is derivative. I saw a major piece of the theme in a television drama back in the 50s, maybe the 60s, and of course there was the novel, FRANKENSTEIN by Mary Shelley, written in the Nineteenth Century with another, very large piece of the theme.
Like all Robert Harris’ novels, it is well worth reading

A suggestion: My novel, THE PENCIL ARTIST is available as an e-book on Smashwords, Kindle, and Barnes and Noble; as a paperback on Amazon.
