Pandemic (Expanded Edition) by Jesse F. Bone, A.M. Dumar
Alan Thurston was an immunologist at Midwestern University Medical School. Like most men in the teaching trade, he also had a research project. If it worked out, he'd be one of the great names in medicine; like Jenner, Pasteur, and Salk. But it didn't work. Quite the opposite ... he created a disease the ravaged the human race!
This edition includes a long essay on the history of pandemics by A.M. Dumar, adding depth to Jesse F. Bone's story.
