Onco: A Bio-Horror Tale
by Anthony Janicska-Boross
The world is at the cusp of Armageddon almost realised.... The year 2030 brings with it starving populations well in excess of fifteen billion. Half of whom are living day to day or dying day by day. By 2035, it is estimated that only 25 percent of the world population will have enough food, water, and medical care.
Onco portrays the very real and imminent spectre of humanity running out of essential resources, eventually precipitating global starvation and its consequences.
But when Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade's going to survive, he'll have to win—and confront the real world he's always been so desperate to escape.
