A meteor hit earth? It seemed unreal, but that is what was first believed when a supposed meteor hit Buenos Aires, Argentina. However, as investigations begin, the findings show that it was a small planet hitting Earth, and there is more to come with this disaster in W.B. Weber’s new science fiction novel, A Planet Called Wormwood, a multiple-character story. After the meteor/planet hit, changes start happening to several people not only in Argentina, but also in the United States. People are noticed as displaying animal-like behavior, with people attacking people for no reason and in violent ways similar to animal attacks. The survivors on Earth realize an infestation on Earth has taken place and time is running out on supplies, gas and lives in general. The multiple characters storyline in A Planet Called Wormwood illustrates a survivor’s story of hope, faith and the resilience of the human spirit.
