Mona’s Stories

Mona Bendarova’s stories explore a dystopian future where humanity barely escapes extinction. Long in the past, a devastating plague which later became known as the ‘Purge Plague,’ nearly caused the annihilation of humanity. Scientists and corporate agendas set to increase profits did not take into account that nature has its way of dealing with changes.

Modifications in the DNA of the food stock to increase yields were so commonplace they forgot to test for consequences. Corporate greed and well-minded scientists thought what they accomplished would benefit humanity and their bank accounts. They couldn’t be more wrong.

They lost control of these Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), releasing a wildfire of destruction attacking the genetic structures of most protein based life on Earth.

Survival in Humanity’s Dystopian future

DNA strand targeted in Mona's Stories

Within one hundred years, the devastation eradicated all animal life. Vegetable sources of protein also suffered, dying off by the thousands of species every year. Proteins needed to sustain life disappeared from the planet, along with all species dependent upon consuming those proteins.

Humans now lacked the critical consumable proteins necessary to maintain life. Where once there were seven billion people on the planet, only a few million survived. These last few were on the brink of obsolescence. Only by sheer luck and determination, scientists saved humans from extinction. However, it came at a great expense to the survivors.

Jump ahead a thousand years, following the chaos and anarchy that ensued, the surviving community of humans eventually developed a culture whereby they could stave off the extinction of the entire species. From the day one was born, men and women alike, each knew from where their next meal came from, and exactly what their eventual fate was.
