Don't freak out. Tim Cruz was the average kid. He loved the things lots of kids love. Then, one day at a baseball game, everything began to change. He got sick. Real sick. The kind of sick people don't recover from. So Tim did the reasonable thing. He went into a cocoon and waited for the end. But just when he thought he thought he was toast, game over, yesterday's news . . . it turned out he wasn't. His sickness went away. Just like that. Now he's in re-entry mode, trying to do all the things he used to do. Trying to get back into the world. But it's not easy, especially when the world's got a few surprises for him. Tim finds himself changing-turning into something he never would have imagined possible. Something stupid and horrifying and, frankly, kind of disgusting. Which would be crappy enough even if he knew why it was happening. But he doesn't have a clue. And the only person who might have one has disappeared. So all Tim can do is tell himself, over and over, as the stakes skyrocket and his life gets crazier and crazier: Don't freak out.

About Michael Jan Friedman

Michael Jan Friedman traces his passion for science fiction back to his sixth summer and a House of Mystery comic book. Soon after, he discovered Edgar Rice Burroughs and used his allowance to compile a paperback collection of the Tarzan, Carter of Mars and Carson of Venus tales. He still has that collection. When he grew a little older, he was dazzled by Bradbury, awed by Tolkien and inspired by Roger Zelazny. It was their work that impelled him to become an author. Friedman has a B.A. in English Literature from the University of Pennsylvania, where a favorite professor once asked him, "What makes a kid from Queens want to write about leprechauns?" It was there that he learned to fence under the tutelage of Lajos Czisar-although he spent more time warming the bench and shouting, "Alas" than cutting and thrusting. He received his M.S. in Journalism from the Newhouse School at Syracuse University, where he met his wife, the former Joan Laxer. The Friedmans currently reside on Long Island. Their commuting time to Manhattan is twenty-nine minutes.
