       Additional Information  
      The Chimera Virus is a fast-paced, sensual and sometimes horrific SF techno-mythos.

    A wayward meteorite delivers an intelligent virus to the primeval Earth. The alien virus traverses the evolutionary ladder until finding a compatible home within the sentient community of man. Ultimately a human schism occurs; the virus gives birth to a race of vigilante vampires enhanced by the DNA of the various mammals that fell host to the ambitious traveler...

    Synopsis provided by the author.

    In the modern world men and vampires live in a peculiar symbiotic relationship in which the evil in man infuses life into the blood of the vampires and, in return, the vampires weed out the predators among humanity. The precarious balance is fraught with a perilous history that has settled into a curious harmony until the Earth is invaded by a vanguard of alien soldiers, powerful reptilian invaders. But two female Bloodwarriors present more of an obstacle than the aliens could ever have imagined might exist on this outland world. The girls know that there is more at risk than a delicate social fabric; the fate of the entire world is at stake—and the vampires are determined to remain at the top of the food chain.

    There is an even more provocative and pressing question: what species, what world, what empire will fall ultimate victim to The Chimera Virus?
