weird horror book has a big splash of science fiction thru-out it.
FROM THE PUBLISHER
The four novels of the Millennium Quartet reveal the cataclysms that await mankind at the turn of the century and vividly tell of the effects of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse as they sweep across the world, leaving devastation in their wake. In New Orleans a man sits in a musty hotel, waiting. He has lost his wife and child, driven them away with his obsession to interview captured and convicted serial killers. John knows that hidden in his conversations with these men and women, now ghosts preserved only in his tape recordings, are great secrets. Secrets that might unlock the truth about what is happening in the world. John's safe world has become a very dangerous place - a place where entire towns are consumed by insanity overnight, where neighbors murder neighbors over minor insults, where crops fail and animals die in the fields and there are no fish in the fishermen's nets.
From the back of the book:
