Is the novel, "The True Virus", a thriller or science fiction?
Is a novel that uses a concept that is in its experimental stages considered Science Fiction? Since my novel, “The True Virus
”, which takes place during the last Gaza/Israeli war and involves the CIA, Mossad and Hamas terrorists with lots of action, I feel this puts it into the thriller genre. However, the plot revolves around a Hamas bioterrorist hacking into the DNA component of the CIA computer, resulting in a real live virus which causes an epidemic.
Scientists have experimented with DNA based computers and have had some success. Also, as a microbiologist, I know that a virus is nothing more than a DNA molecule surrounded by a protein coat. Therefore, is my novel a thriller or science fiction?
