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

I won’t say I hope you enjoy it. Â 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.)
