I am Richard Preston, author of “The Hot Zone” and expert in the Ebola virus. AMA!
I am Richard Preston, a writer who knows Ebola. I’m author of “The Hot Zone,” the book inspired by my 1992 article in The New Yorker. My latest article, published this week in the magazine, describes the current outbreak. I also wrote “Cobra Event” and “Demon in the Freezer” (the Dark Biology Triad). I’m happy to take questions about the Ebola situation now, or any of my books. Ask me anything!
