In addition to “The Coma,” he is the author of the novels “The Beach” (1997) and “The Tesseract” (1999), as well as the original screenplay for the film “28 Days Later.” He was chosen by Entertainment Weekly as one of the 100 hottest people in entertainment in 1999, and as one of Time Out’s “People to Watch” in 1997.
