â€”Walter Jon Williams
It began soon after the Millennium. Reports of newborns with strange malformations, too weak to liveâ€¦caused by a single genetic mutation. Or, as the press quickly dubbed it, the Dragon Virus. Scientists predicted that it was an evolutionary dead end; that the mutation would burn itself out quickly; that it was nothing to be worried about.
They were wrong.
Everything was about to change.
Six connected stories, charting the end â€“ beginning â€“ of everything we know, everything we fear, everything we hope forâ€¦.
With an Introduction by Walter Jon Williams

Legendâ€¦. is not always accurate. And often, the truth is a better story.
