An alien virus arrives on Earth after World War II, killing or transforming into grotesque monsters all those who become infected, except for a lucky few who become superhuman, in a collection of short stories by Roger Zelazny, Melinda A.

Amazon.com description: Product Description: The alien virus arrived on Earth just after World War II-and the world was never the same. For those who become infected, there are two results: death, or transformation. And depending on the recipient, death is sometimes the preferable outcome. Only a few lucky ones become superhuman "aces" as a side effect of the virus; and the rest are turned into horrible, grotesque "jokers." It's a strange and wonderful, terrible and terrifying world where anything can go. A world that, in a twist of fate, could lie just outside your door.
