Epidemics, take II

We were talking about Epidemics on the Yalsa-bk listserv and some people reminded me of some great titles that I didn’t mention on Tuesday:

The Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin
The Stand by Stephen King
The Kill Order by James Dashner
Pandemia by Jonathon Rand
Earth Abides by George Stewart
I Am Legend by Richard Matheson
The Rot & Ruin series by Jonathan Maberry
The Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts
The Cobra Event by Richard Preston

Also, in her book Reality Rules, Besty Fraser has a chapter on “Natural Disasters and Disease Epidemics” that includes titles like Jim Murphy’s An American Plague and Susan Bartoletti’s Black Potatoes.  And don’t forget the nonfiction title Invisible Microbe by Jim Murphy.

And so I spent this morning avoiding everything I am supposed to be doing and made an RA poster to do a display.  You can download the poster at https://www.box.com/s/qkwn20dxkut0t90zacs7

    Doomsday Book by Connie Willis looks at plagues in two different time periods. Plus it won every major SF award.
