Guest blog: Disasters! DRAGON VIRUS by Laura Anne Gilman

When Kevin Anderson approached me about being part of the Storybundle for his Disasters collection, I was surprised – because I’d never thought of DRAGON VIRUS in that way before. I mean, disaster books are action-adventure stories, as a rule. DRAGON VIRUS has action, and it has adventure, and courage and tragedy and all that, but…a disaster story?

Well, yes.  Once I’d thought about it, yes.

Dragon Virus Cover Final

From the extinction-bent Wheelies to the families struggling to survive when the rules keep changing, DRAGON VIRUS is about disaster… and how nothing emerges – or survives – unchanged. And how, scary as it seems at the time, no matter how we despair, change isn’t the end.

Don’t believe me? Pick up a copy a DRAGON VIRUS via Storybundle, and discover for yourself. And while you’re at it, pick up ten other novels of disaster, courage, and change, too…
