"Farber is] a lucid and courageous witness to the power-play behind the first 'scamdemic, ' . . . Her] work is journalism at its best--solid, lucid, and humane, attacking wrongs that few dare touch, and thereby helping right them."

--Mark Crispin Miller, bestselling author and professor of media studies at NYU

On April 23, 1984, in a packed press conference room in Washington, DC, the secretary of health and human services declared, "The probable cause of AIDS has been found." By the next day, "probable" had fallen away, and the novel retrovirus later named HIV became forever lodged in global consciousness as "the AIDS virus."

Celia Farber, then an intrepid young reporter for SPIN magazine, was the only journalist to question the official narrative and dig into the science of AIDS. She reported on the "evidence" that was being continually cited and repeated by health officials and the press, the deadliness of AZT, and Dr. Fauci's trials on children, infants, and pregnant mothers. Throughout, Faber's reportage was largely ignored. She was maligned, maliciously attacked, and ultimately canceled.

Now, forty years after her original reporting, Farber's Serious Adverse Events: An Uncensored History of AIDS is reissued with a new foreword by Mark Crispin Miller, shining much-needed light on her groundbreaking work once again. More relevant than ever, this book serves as an essential foundation to understanding its catastrophic sequel: COVID-19. Serious Adverse Events makes clear that the tactics employed at the height of HIV/AIDS--the fearmongering, cancel culture, and "woke" takeover of science, medicine, and journalism--persist today. The response to COVID-19 isn't new: it is a well-trod and dangerous path in the social landscape.

"Groundbreaking work."--Bob Guccione, Jr., founder of SPIN magazine

"Farber's research give context to the Covid catastrophe which she all but predicted. Despite the medical cartel's brutal crusade to silence and vilify her, Farber never compromised. . . I'm happy she has lived to experience her own utter vindication. I also love her writing style."--Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
