The year is 2010. The V-CIDS virus, once thought to be a cure for AIDS, has mutated into an even deadlier disease and is ravaging the United States. While scientists struggle to find a cure, victims are rounded up and isolated in government camps. Their numbers increase at a staggering rate, and the camp officials treat the victims like so much cordwood to be shipped to local crematoria. Outside the camps, paranoia and homophobia run rampant. Michael Barris, an outspoken TV executive, bucks the paralyzing fear and seeks to visit his estranged son at one of the camps. Once inside, he too becomes a prisoner, and his efforts to deal with his own feelings as well as the overwhelming lack of humanity and compassion that he witnesses make this a powerful, disturbing, and depressing story. Hickman is coauthor with Margaret Weiss of the "Dragonlance" sf series (e.g., Dragonlance: The Legend Becomes Reality, Random, 1986). For popular collections.
