    Phage therapy

    Actually the process is straightforward. The particular bacteria is cultured then treated with a solution from a bacteria rich environment to find something thats eats the bacteria. The best source for finding a bacteriophage is often barnyard effluent.

    An Example

    Bruce Sterling's book, "The Hacker Crackdown: Law and Disorder on the Electronic Frontier" is an excellent example of this phenomena. When it was first published in 1992, Mr. Sterling decided to allow e-book versions to be circulated for free.

    Whatever his reasoning, the result is that print copies sell out immediately when they hit the shelves. New runs are promptly snapped up by advance orders. I have my copy simply because I found a bookstore employee putting three copies on the shelf in 2012. I took my copy. The other two were gone before I left the store.
