The Wade Resonance

It’s like a science fiction horror plot; imagine an epidemic with a 100% mortality rate that suddenly pops up in the Australian outback.  It spreads to the small towns, then to larger cities, and over the course of just two generations, it kills every man, woman, and child, leaving the entire island of Australia, 3 million square […]
