Plague Holocaust Classic! Before the swine flu was in the news, plague, diphtheria, cholera, etc were one of the many natural disasters that could end human life as we know it in 'end of the world' fiction. One of these horrific plagues hits England and the world in this 1903 Apocalyptic novel where the disease kills millions, spreading from person to person, via waste, sewers, and causes havoc. One of the most frightening novels of its time, a time before vaccination was even a remote remedy. Frederick Merrick White wrote this Doom of London science-fiction story, in which this horrific catastrophe wipes out London. This frightening scenario is now threatening to repeat itself with the so-called Swine Flu scare, causing a re-interest in "The Dust of Death: The Story of the Great Plague of the 20th Century". A must for those interested in 'end of the world' by viral disease or plague stories. A masterpiece in its day and as frightening and captivating as ever. Prof. Muggins.
