Mark | 5 comments I read the book in the early 1980’s which means it is probably from the mid-to-late 70s (though it could be earlier than that, or very early 80s (I graduated in ‘85, so I know I read before that.)).

There were at least three scientists that were trying to figure out ways to stop it. And at one point, I believe, it caused a red tide to come inshore and killed a bunch of people at a beach.

It’s a b/c-type thriller. Along the lines of Norman Bogner’s Snowman

What is b/c?

Eugene Kuznetsov | 26 comments Trevor Hoyle's "Last Gasp", by any chance?

Eugene Kuznetsov | 26 comments Or Crawford Killian's "Icequake".

Neither one seems to match exactly but both have some common elements.

Mark | 5 comments B/c is like a b-listed or c-listed type book. One that you wouldn’t think to find at a Barnes & Noble (or Waldenbooks when I was growing up), but always seems to show up at a paperback exchange store, so people bought them somewhere.
