Summary
"John Varley has won multiple awards for his "imaginative and engaging"* novels. Now the author of Millennium, Steel Beach, and Rolling Thunder speculates how people would survive in a world suddenly stripped of the fuel that makes it run... Despite warswith Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as 9/11, the United States' dependence on foreign oil has kept the nation tied to the Middle East. A scientist has developed a cure for America's addiction--a slow-acting virus that feeds on petroleum, turning it solid.But he didn't consider that his contagion of an Iraqi oil field could spread to infect the fuel supply of the entire world... In Los Angeles, screenwriter Dave Marshall heard this scenario from a retired US marine and government insider who acted as a consultant on Dave's last film. It sounded as implausible as many of his scripts, but the reality is much more frightening than anything he could have envisioned. An ordinary guy armed with extraordinary information, Dave hopes his survivor's instinct will kick in so he can protect his wife and daughter from the coming apocalypse that will alter the future of Earth--and humanity... *San Francisco Chronicle"--
