Review: THE CAMELLIA RESISTANCE by A. R. Williams
First of a series, THE CAMELLIA RESISTANCE takes a different turn to reach an ugly dystopian society. In this case, the fulcrum is Health: no not plagues which decimates the global population; nor a pandemic which first kills, then revives as zombies. This is a more finely-tuned sociopolitical alteration; not the broadly.drawn disaster of nuclear holocaust or plagues. This dystopianism is very plausible; just hark back to the initial onslaught of AIDS in the U.S.: remember the paranoia, the unfounded ugly assertions, the virulent hate--and you will know that a society founded on "Health" could very well become a dystopia in which the contagious ill are ostracized, made pariah, considered enemies of the state. Here you have it.
