Author Dean Koontz wrote a novel called “The Eyes of Darkness,” originally published in 1981, describing a killer virus that some claimed echoes the current coronavirus outbreak.
Some of them bear eerie similarities to what’s happening right now, prompting some people on the internet to claim that certain storytellers “predicted” the spread of coronavirus.
One particularly striking example comes from a thriller novel by Dean Koontz called “The Eyes of Darkness.”In a tweet that has since been widely shared, someone said that Koontz had predicted the coronavirus outbreak based on a screenshot of a page in the book.
A Dean Koontz novel written in 1981 predicted the outbreak of the coronavirus. But to say that Koontz saw all this coming is a bit of a stretch. A novel is a work of fiction, after all.
