Overview

In the near future, a group of college researchers are working at combining nanotechnology and genetics in the search for cancer treatments. A serendipitous discovery leads to an economical cure for everything.
Unfortunately, things rapidly spin out of control and the news spreads that many major drug companies, most hospitals, all assisted-care facilities, and all wheelchair and orthopedic manufacturers are no longer needed. As information on the new drug, Omniphage escapes, the worldwide financial house of cards collapses.
Further fear and confusion reign when it is discovered that mixing Omniphage with certain types of animal genetic material can create hybrids. Superstitious hysteria brings out the worst in many people. Only a few places with names like Alice Island, Lazy Fair and Dreamland, provide a measure of security for education and research.

Excerpt from the book:

"Overpopulation could be a problem if it was used indiscriminately... but I don't think..." She stopped.
His smile broadened. "You thought of it too, didn't you? Who decides? Who gets treated and who is left to die?
"Federal controls..."
"Hah! There isn't a government in the world that can stop ten percent of their population from smoking marijuana. What makes you think they could put a cap on the ultimate cure? Hell if someone tried, their own office staff would lynch them."

    "When you've cheated death, how will you honor life? After

    "When you've cheated death, how will you honor life?

    After a group of geneticists discover the secret to perfect health for all mankind, dystopian paranoia and power destabilization leads to an ironic apocalypse of material dearth and moral collapse. While the line between human and animal is shockingly blurred not only by behavior but by genetics, and men decide who lives and dies in lieu of gods, science races to deliver the chosen away from an Earth unravelling from it's greatest achievement to begin a new chapter of the human saga in the heavens.

    Tackling the big questions of the human experience, Onmiphage tells the story of what can happen to life when death becomes an option."

    Open Source Science vs Corporate Control While Mutated Mammalian

    Open Source Science vs Corporate Control While Mutated Mammalian Women go on the Lamb.

    Omniphage: Multiplarity is about the quest for immortality and freedom that sparks a deconstruction of the power structure in the USA. After a DNA splicing discovery, the country and it's citizens undergo startling transformations. To escape a new vein of tyranny, our heroes are forced into hiding. They go on the lamb and cut through a cross section of Americana.

    This tale harkens back to the classic of sci-fi horror of the 1950s, which were meaningful celebrations of science while offering warnings of what could go wrong. In this case the author updates the genre for modern readers. This story has many levels. It offers wisdom and insight while remaining fun. It's got great pace that keeps you turning pages and keeps you thinking.

    If you're a fan of Cat People, Contact, The Fly, X-files or The Island of Doctor Moreau, you'll probably enjoy Omniphage: Multiplarity. And if you seek out human to animal transformation stories, you're in for a real treat.
