This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related.

Not sure if this is a hoax as I haven't looked into it:

The really really sick funny weird thing about this..

This guy wrote a work of fiction 40 years ago that in a very superficial way (only) seems to parallel actual events today.
- And some fruit cakes are already saying that this coincidence is further proof that it was indeed a man-made biological weapon.

Think about it - and then roll around on the floor in screaming fits of laughter (again) at these mentally defective conspiracy theorists.

From my understanding (which could be wrong) Originally it was Gorki-400 from Russia. When Koontz rereleased a couple years later the Cold War had ended and Russia wasn't seen as such a threat and the US was experiencing some friction with China. There was also a lot of Anti-communist movement in America. "The Cold War isn't thawing; it is burning with a deadly heat. Communism isn't sleeping; it is, as always, plotting, scheming, working, fighting."- Richard M. Nixon So I believe he changed the villain to China as that was the current threat in his eyes. No mumbo jumbo involved.
