Editorial Reviews

Review

A cliff-hanger ... Eucarion makes comparable books seem like slow-moving freight trains. -- Migael Pacheco

Like a virus, Curt Samlaska's infectious prose style insinuates itself into the reader's system. Subplots multiply hyperbolically. The result? Total contagion!! Eucarion delivers shivers, chills, and night sweats. Call Dr. Samlaska. I demand more!!! -- Ellen Robinson, Medical Journalist, author of Plague Dancer

On every page of this irresistible book, the compassionate and fiery spirit of the author shines like a candle, illuminating life at its best and worst, its depths and heights. Like nothing else I know; A medical-military-psychological thriller. A real gem. -- Eryk Hanut, author of I Wish You Love, Light Upon Light and Mary's Vineyard

Samlaska is able to provide esoteric details which serve to heighten the reality of the story. His knowledge of the military and medical arenas is extensive. A must read for techno-thriller enthusiasts. -- Bonnie Lennon, Starword Productions

About the Author

Dr. Curt Samlaska graduated from the University of Minnesota School of Medicine and immediately entered active duty service in the United States Army. He received his training in internal medicine at Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii and is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians. He completed his dermatology training at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology.

During his 14 years of military service Dr. Samlaska was actively involved in academic medicine, teaching at both Tripler Army Medical Center and Walter Reed Army Medical Center. An expert in telemedicine, he was deployed to Europe to establish telemedicine in Bosnia in support of Operation Joint Endeavor. He has published more than 60 scientific articles, medical journal articles and textbook chapters. Seven of his works were incorporated into the plot of Eucarion, producing a story that reflects his scientific background.

He is currently in private practice and resides in Las Vegas, Nevada. His second novel, Terminal Cascade, will be published soon.

Format: Paperback
A great medical and political thriller with a military top note. Think of Tom Clancy mixed with Robin Cook or Michael Crichton. Clearly Samlaska put a lot of research into politics, infectious disease, and military medicine before writing this novel--and it shows. Not technical but has just enough technical detail to seem authentic. A Great Read!

Format: Paperback
I thouroughly enjoyed Samlaska's Eucarion. Being a physician in the military stationed in the South Pacific, the book took on a special meaning for me. Samlaska skillfully interweaves currently used technology and knowledge with future "could be" technology to add a sense of realism to the plot. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants an engaging thrill.

Mr. Samlaska provided me with a riveting reading experience. I started this book on Friday and finished it on Sunday morning. Eucarion is a page-turner in the style of one of my favorite authors, Michael Crichton. Curt P. Samlaska shows off his vast knowledge in the areas of science, medicine, and psychology. Do yourself a favor and purchase this book.

Dynamite!!! Dr.Samlaska is a master detonator of explosive plots and subplots. Superb handling of technical and medical details make this book appealing to a variety of readers. The characters are so real, they walk off the page to greet you! Until the sequel,I'll just have to read Eucarion again. Susan Neely RPh.
