At the age of 23, Dean Koontz started his life as a writer, beginning with the Star Quest novel in 1968. At the age of 74, he now created a suspense thriller bibliography that regularly uses horror, mystery, and science fiction. With 17 of his works adapted for a film, he wrote over 120 books.
The Eyes of Darkness was first released in 1981 and written under one of the ten pen names of Koontz, Leigh Nichols. In it, Christina Evans’s mother complains about the loss of her son, Danny, who died with a group of campers unexpectedly and unexplainedly.
But unexpectedly, she receives texts and signals from nowhere, after she starts her death, telling her that Danny is still alive. Then Christina continues to look for the facts of what really happened.
When the reader encountered for the first time in a Dean-Koontz novel entitled “The Eyes of Darkness,” a biological weapon called „Wuhan-400,” we doubt that anyone had the idea of the popular thriller author predicting a true COVID-19 epidemic, a coronaviral disease. But after this outbreak in February 2020, the eagle-eyed fans from Koontz shared this passage as if the renowned thriller were predictors.
This is a true page from the novel “The Dark Eyes.” The passage can be seen in Amazon’s preview of this December 2008 mass market paperback edition.
It is accurate that in this novel Koontz called “Wuhan 400” a fictional biological weapon. Wuhan, China, is also the town centering on the coronavirus disease outbreak in 2020. This, though, is fairly the end of the parallels.
Even though “prediction” is incorrect with a few points mentioned following:
- “Wuhan-400” is a human-made weapon in Koontz’s book. On the other side, coronavirus did not occur.
- “Wuhan-400” has a fatality rate of 100 percent in the book. While scientists still learn about coronavirus, the current fatality rate is approximately 2 percent.
- In comparison to the COVI D-19, which has an incubation period between two and 14 days, the fictional “WUAN-400” has an extremely fast incubation time of approximately four hours.
But for this forecast, there is more bad news.
Although Koontz’s page above shows real, other versions have been named for the fictional biological weapon in other sections of this novel. We did not find any references to “Wuhan” when we searched an edition of this 1981 book which was available through Google Books. This biological weapon in that version is named Gorka-400 following its founding in the Russian region.
When or why this move happened, we’re not completely aware. What we can say is that when this book was released in 1981, the biological weapon was initially named “Gorki-400.” The name was, however, changed to “Wuhan-400” by 2008.
Whether “Wuhan-400” came into the novel of Koontz, this is not a forecast. Koontz didn’t say that his novel events would be realized later and that the parallels between “Wuhan-400” and COVID-19 were minor. In addition, the reader only found this “prediction” when a coronavirus outbreak was announced in Wuhan, China which only coincides with this “prediction.”
A second photograph, alleged to have been circulated in social media from a novel by Koontz, entitled “The Eyes of Darkness,” shows that the author “predicted” the pandemic COVID-19.
This page is not from the novel “The Eyes of Darkness” by Koontz. In reality, this comes from a book by psychic Sylvia Browne called “The End of the Days.”
