The world is in entropic meltdown in V.O. Blum's prize-winning novella.
Suicide decimates the population, aircraft fall from the skies, people gasp for breath in city streets. Despair is palpable – and contagious – a pandemic of malaise. Slow planetary deterioration had long been assumed, but nobody expected all systems to interactively collapse so precipitously. Has a global psychosis seized the collective mind?
Foster Castle, a young chemist, searches for evidence. He stumbles across strange chemical and physical clues that suggest the earth’s population is responding to a measurable dispiriting force.

2025 becomes a macabre landmark, the portal of anti-history.

The first pandemic was the Black Death of the 1340s, which killed at least half of Europe’s population. The second pandemic was the Spanish Flu of 1918-20, which took fifty million lives.
The Third Pandemic is Pierre Ouellette’s sci-fi thriller that traces the fatal trajectory of a virulent new bacterial mutation that slowly spreads panic and havoc around the globe.
First published in 1996, The Third Pandemic is an eerily prescient novel that takes on a terrifying new relevance.
