Greg Mutton

The world has been decimated by a biological weapon. Over 85% of the population is dead, the rest are rendered sterile. Now a small group fights back, but are they too late? Shanghaied is the story of this fight back, Shanghaied is fast paced and full of action. Set in the not too distant future and based on things that are being researched today.

It has been said that our memories are what makes us who we are.

So, who are we if we lose all our memories?

Two people wake up not knowing who they are, where they are or how they got there.

The world they wake up to is also unknown. The vast majority of the human race is dead - entire countries are uninhabitable.

The cause? Human stupidity.

Two scientists developed what they believed would be the holy grail of vaccines; a binary virus/vaccine that would fight all disease, ending massive suffering. Politics and greed, however, got in their way. Their vision of a universal savior for humanity was transformed into a weapon of mass destruction, the likes never before imagined. If it didn't kill, it rendered the recipient sterile. Anyone left alive is now doomed to a long, slow death.

One man thinks he can fix the problem. Professor Reginald Denham finds a way to travel back in time and recruit healthy people for his dream of a human breeding program.

But... the virus isn't finished. It fights back! Any child conceived either dies in the womb or is so horrendously mutated, it cannot survive.

In desperation, Denham returns to the past again, this time with a different agenda. Instead of "recruiting" another couple... he "shanghaies" them.

This is their story.
