Dr. Ain is an epidemiologist in love with a mystical female Earth. He spreads a designed leukemia virus which will whipe out humanity by flying around the world and using his own body as a carrier.
The story reads like a CIA operative report – given Alice Sheldon’s background as a founding member of the CIA, it feels authentic. But I didn’t understand who was investigating, because humanity will have been whiped out. The author presents a dystopian future in only a couple of spread-in pictures. It is a very dense story packed in only seven pages.
