The day after tomorrow, a whoel new kind of virus gets loose: an airborne pathogen that makes all the lower mammals (though, not apparently, primates) far more aggressive, far more intelligent, and dangerously pack-minded. Almost overnight, the animals rise up — our friendly dogs, our tolerant cats, even the rats hiding in the walls — and take back the world the humans had stolen from them. It only took a few months for our version of civilization to collapse, and now, seventeen years later, humans are relegated to scattered garrisons and a patched-together trading system … while whole new breeds of wild animals rule the world.

And later this March, I’ll be putting Wild, a free-standing novella set seventeen years after the virus fist appeares and the animals rose up against us. It’ll be available on Amazon in Kindle and paperback, and you can get a glimpse of it for free. Click here for more info and a free download

I’d really like to know what you think! Grab that free download, read a piece, and then leave me a message here. I admit, I’ve fallen in love with this weird, tropical, dangerous future, and I’ll be back on a regular basis. Hope you will be too.
