Necessary IllBook - 2013
Jin is a designer and spreader of plagues intended to keep the human population in balance with the dwindling resources at hand. Jin is also a neuter, one of a clandestine group of naturally genderless humans. When a young woman named Sandy is thrust violently into the world of the neuters, the worlds of genders and neuters begin to clash. From the limestone caverns deep beneath the New Mexico desert to the streets of Albuquerque, Amarillo, and St. Louis, Jin straddles the line between creation and destruction. With the help of Sandy, an enclave of underground artists, and an unwitting ally bent on taking the neuters down, Jin struggles to create the disease that will save humanity from itself.
