I thought you might be interested in an early preview of “The Last Centurion” a novel about the world after an Avian Flu pandemic. The Author is John Ringo – who writes military and sci-fi – and often combines the two. The language is coarse, and it is written in a blog style, but it has some great observations about society, politicians, money supply and what happens in a real disaster.
You can find the early release chapters online.
It really gets good in chapter 5 and 6 talking about the responses to the outbreak and how some groups/cultures of people just think different – and therefore have different reactions as the government tries to respond. All the best, – Clarke
