Dr. Allen Newton’s head was still spinning, and he felt somewhat nauseous. His thoughts seemed foggy as if he were having a bad dream. He tried desperately to say something, anything. He even tried to force himself to scream, but all that would come out was some mumbled words. It was as if he was in a nightmare where he could not speak or do anything else. Dr Newton was watching the chain of events unfold as a spectator.

“The Xanthic Maize,” a gripping sci-fi thriller written by author PG Dunn revolves around the character of Dr. Allen Newton, a brilliant scientist hired by Bonosano (the largest manufacturer of hybrid corn in the world) to test for possible side effects of their greatest project. Dr. Allen has exhibited exemplary and reputable work on the Xanthic Maize Project, but something has gone wrong to change the course of things.

The dumping of Bonosano’s test products in the woods surrounding the cornfields has caused the creatures in it to be infected. The creature could be the answer to man’s greatest weapon or the world’s worst enemy. But how long can Bonosano engage in a cover-up before strange and dismal events begin to unfold? How will these events cause mutations and blood-curdling catastrophes to occur? Can Dr. Allen save every living creature that could possibly be infected with this zombielike trance?

“The Xanthic Maize” will show how people can be overcome by the advertisement of a better future and by the dark side of the after effects as well. A truly entertaining read, it will keep readers sitting on the edge of their seats and clamor for more.
