[Cover] Ill Wind
and Doug Beason
Tor (reprint, paperback, 563 pages, $6.99 US/$7.99 Canada)
Publication date: May 1996

A post-apocalyptic thriller featuring an original and very unusual apocalypse indeed, from the authors of Assemblers of Infinity and Ignition. "When a supertanker crashes off San Francisco, producing the largest oil spill in history, the multinational oil company at fault releases an untested "designer microbe" to break up the spill. The "oil-eating" microbe was designed to cleanly consume almost anything made of petrocarbons: oil, gasoline, synthetic fabrics, even plastics. But the microbe propagates through the air... and when every car in the Bay area turns up with an empty gas tank, people begin to suspect something is terribly wrong. And when, just a few days later, every piece of plastic around the world begins dissolving, it's too late."
