Description

A short story that grew into a book, Blood Music deals with a biochemist researcher who is fired, and takes his work with him by injecting it into himself. Bad idea, as these microscopic entities are becoming intelligent and as they spread begin treating and changing human bodies much the same way as we treat the land. In the short story at least there was a vivid description of a couple changing into plant-like homes for these creatures that live in the bloodstream. Advanced in its day for the concepts, it is a little dated with references to the Soviet Union.
