Paul Levinson

Author Paul Levinsonabout this book: This book is an "author's cut" Kindle edition of a novel I wrote in the 1990s, which won the Locus Award for Best Science Fiction novel of 1999. By "author's cut," I mean I reinstated some of my original wording which I changed during the editing for the 1999 publication. The novel explores the possibility that Neanderthals may have survived into the present day, and just how they were able to do it. It presents this story from the vantage point of an NYPD forensic detective, whose interest in DNA and prehistoric cultures draws him into the case - that, and the fact that some of his colleagues are mysteriously dying. I spent a lifetime researching this book - reading the Science section of the New York Times, as well as articles and books about prehistoric life. The title is a combination of The Silk Road and DNA code. The New York Times in its review of the 1999 edition said The Silk Code "delivers on its promises."
