Plague of Pythons | [Frederik Pohl]

Plague of Pythons

The pythons had entered into Mankind. No man knew at what moment he might be possessed! On Christmas, the world's freedom died. Every man, woman and child lay in the grip of fear, for no one knew at what moment his nearest friend or a casual stranger might suddenly be possessed by some brutal mind... and begin to murder and destroy.

For Chandler it was worse than for most. He was both victim and executioner.

Publisher's Summary

The pythons had entered into Mankind. No man knew at what moment he might be possessed! On Christmas, the world's freedom died. Every man, woman and child lay in the grip of fear, for no one knew at what moment his nearest friend or a casual stranger might suddenly be possessed by some brutal mind... and begin to murder and destroy.

For Chandler it was worse than for most. He was both victim and executioner. He had suffered himself, and he had committed a violent crime while under the strange domination. Accused of hoaxing, he was driven from his home. He wandered the world and found it smashed like a spoiled child's plaything. Now Chandler was in the very presence of the destroyers! But what could one person do against such power? The power of gods!

    Story
    "Plague of King to come."

    At times this reads like a Stephen King novel, only not as long and not as good. I believe that Pohl wanted to go to Hawaii on vacation and write it off on his taxes so he wrote this book.

    Having said that, the premise that someone could learn how to control others minds and make them slaves to there will is scary. That a country could use this as a weapon on another country. I would like to see Stephen King take this idea and run with it or maybe he already has and I have not read it yet.

    Pohl has written some really good stuff, so I suggest you skip this and read any of the following: Gateway, Space Merchants, The Merchants War, The Tunnel Under The World, Man Plus, Star Burst, Jem, The Coming of the Quantum Cats, The Voices of Heaven or Alternating Currents.
