Tears of Dr Wang
Author and journalist Todko Samson's Tears of Dr. Wang is the first volume of the trilogy novel series and two novellas comprising of the five-book anthology under the name, Who Will Believe You? In 2014, while hospitalized and undergoing treatment for a serious medical condition as an immigrant refugee from Mongolia in Austria, Todko Samson began authoring his first literary works.
The first volume of the series was first published in 2017 and immediately began to cause a stir in Mongolia, where the literary work was first released. The reason for the controversy stemmed from the subject matter of the first novel, which details a secret plot of bacteriological warfare originating in China and Mongolia but affecting not only those in Asia, but also populations globally. Despite being a fictional literary work, this first novel has created widespread debate in the Mongolian community regarding its central issues—an insidious experimental vaccine involving eight hundred children, a conspiracy involving the intentional distribution of a highly infectious disease among livestock and the native animal population, the poisoning of grazelands, and the revelation of clandestine business owners with nefarious intents of commissioning irresponsible mining operations. The height of controversy surrounding this novel coincided with the COVID-19 pandemic originating in 2019 and continuing even today as if somehow this novel prophetically predicted the outbreak and its suspicious origins.
Although the author published this work two years immediately prior to COVID-19's rapid spread across the globe, the events, timeline, and countries involved in the origination of the spread of the disease, as well as its subsequent transmission across the globe, the many vaccines which would follow, and the profiteering that emerged as a result of such a pandemic is foretold in the novel.
The Tears of Dr. Wang details with prophetic and fantastical accuracy and detail modern science, a worldwide pandemic, and evidence of the origins thereof. This novel has already achieved unprecedented success in the Mongolian market, having remained atop or near the top of the bestseller list for a consecutive five years and counting. The controversial subject matter has twice resulted in baseless legal action against the author, but in the end, both claims were thrown out of court and truth prevailed.
