From Science fiction grandmaster Frank Herbert, creator of the Dune universe, comes this novel of bioterrorism and gendercide. What if women were an endangered species? It begins in Ireland.
The White Plague book. The book is very well written and engaging but I did have a couple of grumbles, the first being that Herbert utilises national stereotypes quite a bit, which was a bit irritating. He also clearly HATES the British Man, this was a harrowing read! Made all the more so because of its plausibility. I don't know if the science was up to it at the time the book was written but the titular plague, which is carried by males unsymptomatically but kills all females, is more than possible today.

When an IRA terrorist car bomb explodes, the wife and children of molecular biologist John Roe O'Neill are indiscriminately killed on May 20, 1996. Driven halfway insane by loss, his mind fragments into several personalities that carry out his plan for him. He plans a gendercidal revenge and creates a plague that kills only women, but for which men are the carriers.
René Dubos THIS CASTLE’S haunted, Kate whispered night. Shush, Stephen whispered. My grandmother could tell when ghosts were about, and I’ve inherited it. This is an evil place.
To Ned Brown For his years of friendship. I fear for the shape of things which may come from the heat of O'Neill's plague. Truly, I fear, for the heat is great. Fintan Craig Doheny.
