Bad Influences

Bad Influences concerns the devastating spread of a fatal pandemic flu virus. The story is set exactly thirteen years from now – the posts and comments will go up in real time, on the same dates and at the same moments that the characters will post them in 2026. The story is told simultaneously from the viewpoint of four major characters from four distant corners of the world, and sometimes by their friends, family or random strangers who comment on their blogs.

Mei is an idealistic first year art student at Peking University, Jack is a comic artist and gamer living on his family’s farm in New Jersey, Elaine is a misanthropic supermarket greeter in Canberra and Ash is a nurse, husband, father and disillusioned ex-rebel in North London.
