New (ebook) Release: Dragon Virus

Most of the folk here, if you know me as a writer, know me for my novels.

I also write short fiction. Some of it’s similar to my novels, and some of it…isn’t.

Many years ago, I wrote a story. It was called “End of Days,” and it was, in a phrase, one fucked-up child of a story. And I loved it, because it was so fucked-up, and painful, and true. And because it asked me to do things, writing-wise, and write things, theme-wise, that I’d never done before.

And then, a little while later, with entirely different things in my head, I wrote a story called “Dragons.” And it was only mildly fucked-up, and in a totally different voice and time and setting, and – and they were set in the same world.

And I realized that they were the start and end points of…. call it a story-cycle.

And Dragon Virus came into being.

In 2011, Fairwood Press published it as a limited edition, signed hardcover.

And now, in 2012, BookViewCafe is publishing it as an ebook.

Words, even beautiful words, cannot explain what this project means to me.  It was the challenge to me-as-writer, and me-as-human.  It’s the challenge to all of us, to look at our beliefs, our expectations, our presumptions and our prejudices, and our innate, bastard/angel, human impulses.

I won’t say I hope you enjoy it.  I do hope it moves you.

(yes, it will go up on Amazon and B&N, for those who prefer those markets. Just…not quite yet.)
