by Don Lowell
After years of staggering from one global disaster to the next, humanity faces what will perhaps be its final enemy: the epidemic “Heavy” and its aftermath. Aided by human folly, apathy, and arrogance, the Heavy has wiped out most of the planet’s population, and with it, all semblance of civilization. A few, scattered bands of survivors are left to pick up the pieces and rebuild—if they can.
Told from the viewpoint of one of the surviving groups’ leaders, Eminent Plague is a fascinating study of courage and cruelty in the face of nearly unimaginable hardship. Don Lowell paints an intricate picture of the plague’s survivors, struggling to overcome the ever-present threats of starvation and disease, and in the process creating the beginnings of a new, primitive society. But their modest success draws brutal bands of human predators, intent on plundering their hard-won resources and on burning and killing everything else—indifferent to humanity’s long-term survival. In Eminent Plague, humans overcome disease, starvation, and anarchy…but can they survive human stupidity?
