REMAIN CALM DO NOT PANIC TAKE SHELTER WAIT FOR FURTHER
INSTRUCTIONS THE SITUATION IS UNDER CONTROL Society is
rocked by a sudden increase in the number of violent
assaults on individuals. Christened 'Haters' by the media,
the attackers strike without warning, killing all who
cross their path. The assaults are brutal, remorseless and
extreme: within seconds, normally rational, self-
controlled people become frenzied, vicious killers. There
are no apparent links as a hundred random attacks become a
thousand, then hundreds of thousands. Everyone,
irrespective of gender, age, race or any other difference,
has the potential to become a victim - or a Hater. People
are afraid to go to work, afraid to leave their homes and,
increasingly, afraid that at any moment their friends,
even their closest family, could turn on them with ultra
violent intent. Waking up each morning, no matter how
well defended, everyone must now consider the fact that by
the end of the day, they might be dead. Or perhaps
worse, become a killer themselves. As the status quo
shifts, ATTACK FIRST, ASK QUESTIONS LATER becomes the
order of the day... only, the answers might be much
different than what you expect....
tradition of H. G. Wells and Richard Matheson, Hater is
one man’s story of his place in a world gone mad— a world
infected with fear, violence, and HATE.
