Alarmingly in the news at the moment is the "global threat of Avian Flu". And that happens to be the subtitle of Mike "City of Quartz" Davis's new book The Monster at our Door.

Avian Flu is, according the to the front cover of the proof I have here in front of me a "terrifying story of a looming world pandemic that could kill 100 million people". I've never thought of Davis as a particularly alarmist writer, so I'll ignore the scary cover and melodramatic title and take a read of this this evening.
