It’s 2022. We all know the world has lost its collective mind. But not quite like this… with random strangers teaming up to commit bizarre acts of violence and self-destruction, from the Santa Monica Pier to the 101 Freeway to a posh Beverly Hills mall. Our only hope lies with four complete strangers — all of whom have had devastating encounters with this phenomenon — who team up in search of answers.
CIVLIANS is the ninth story in John Carpenter’s monthly anthology series, Tales of Science Fiction.
