What “To Mike. You’re in there” means
My just-published novel, Immunity Index, has this dedication:
To Mike. You’re in here.
Mike is my brother. He lives in Wausau, Wisconsin, and he helped me with some questions about the setting. Today is his birthday.
He appears obliquely on Page 158:
…wearing a purple T-shirt that said cancer survivor. … “I got this shirt from a neighbor. He was handing them out.…”
Mike is a cancer survivor and has quite a few purple survivor T-shirts from American Cancer Society events. He would be glad to share them with neighbors if there were a sudden need for purple clothing, so I sneaked him in, doing a good deed.
