At the time of writing this novel I had a creepy feeling about biological weaponry. The understanding of genetic manipulation had grown and in the wrong hands---there are always the wrong hands---it could be totally disastrous. For me personally it was a time of pessimism. Readers have told me recently, 20 years after it was published, they've just read White Eye and how much they enjoyed it. But I did not enjoy writing it, so I've nothing more to say.
