In the 1971 movie The Omega Man (based on the book I Am Legend, by Richard Matheson, 1954) biological warfare between China and Russia kills off 90% of the human race. As a nod to that movie, this month’s flash topic is Biological Warfare. Make us laugh, make us cry, make us cringe in horror…all in 1975 words or less.
Stories do not need to be based on the movie or book in any way, but if you’re curious you can learn more about The Omega Man here.
