About Gene Shinn

Eugene A. Shinn, known by geoscientists worldwide as Gene Shinn, has received numerous awards including the prestigious Twenhofel Medal of the international SEPM Society for Sedimentary Geology, considered the highest in his field. Known mainly for his underwater scientific research on sedimentary processes and coral reefs, he is author of more than 150 scientific publications, many of which are considered paradigm changers. This, his first fiction novel, is based on more than 12 years of research leading a team of microbiologists and chemists within the U.S. Geological Survey. The team has documented effects on environmental and human health of microbes and toxic elements transported to our shores each summer in dust from North Africa. Because of the importance of their work, both NASA and a well-known Congressman who worried about the potential use of dust as a carrier of bioweapons funded his research. The University Press of Florida tells the factual history and implications of that project in great detail in his best selling autobiography, “Bootstrap Geologist.”

Terror From Timbuktu

By: Gene Shinn

In this novel, he focuses on his concerns and those of the late Congressman Bill Young and an influential General at Fort Detrick. Both men were acutely aware that dust could be used as a carrier of bioweapons. The characters in his scary book are based on real people from his research team and others he has known throughout his outstanding career. The reader may have trouble sleeping after reading this book. As the General from Fort Detrick, where US bioweapons were once developed, advised him, “this could happen.”
