During his final medical year, Crichton first stepped into stardom as an author with the publication of The Andromeda Strain, his first bestseller. The Andromeda Strain was also the first notable work in the genre of Techno-thriller that Crichton fathered with his novels.   The book that taught us all about nanotech when nanotech was a brand new thing, Prey has all the elements of Crichton’s best work.
