The highest bidder will receive an ARC of DRAGON VIRUS by Laura Anne Gilman: a limited-edition hardcover story collection to be published by Fairwood Press in June of this year.
It will also include a remarque of some sort to distinguish it from an “ordinary” reviewer’s galley. The higher the bid, the more elaborate the remarque (for example: a reasonable bid might have a limerick or haiku. A high bid could have a piece of original flash fiction)
Minimum Bid: £15.00

It began soon after the Millennium. Reports of newborns with strange malformations, too weak to live . . . 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.
Every racial type. Almost every continent. No known cause. Human-created, maybe. Or just God, throwing the dice. Infecting us, warping us. Tied into our genetic code, from here on in. No known treatment. No idea where even to begin.
Everything was about to change.
