Almost Paradigm is a chapter from the Seventh Iteration.


Malcolm is lapsing into a coma, and Hammond blames everyone else for the failures of the park. As he walks to his bungalow, he is surprised by a juvenile Tyrannosaur. He runs away but falls down a hillside and ends up lying face down in a stream. His right ankle appears to be broken. He is only a hundred yards from his bungalow, and he shouts for help. Meanwhile, Malcolm has become delirious, his fever is higher, and the supply of antibiotics is about to run out.
