Gerritsen, Tess

Tagged: Author

(1953-    ) US physician and later author who has become very well known for her medical thrillers, most of which thrust at the edge of the fantastic; of most sf interest, perhaps (see Medicine), are Bloodstream (1988), in which a parasite seemingly native to a lake causes the humans it invades to act violently; and Gravity (1999), which is set on a Space Station infected with a plague originating in micro-organisms found in a meteor.
