Scott Sigler’s Contagious poster scavenger hunt

Pioneer podcasting author Scott Sigler has a new book coming out from Crown December 30 and is celebrating with a free serialized PDF of the book, a free audio podcast, and an awesome online poster scavenger hunt.

Contagious is a hard-science horror novel concerning a mysterious pathogen that transforms ordinary people into raging killers, psychopaths driven by a terrifying, alien agenda. The human race fights back, yet after every battle the disease responds, adapts, using sophisticated strategies and brilliant ruses to fool its pursuers. The only possible explanation: the epidemic is driven not by evolution but by some malevolent intelligence.

We should have a review of Contagious here at in a couple of weeks.

The scavenger hunt consists of twelve posters spread across popular blogs—find them all and assemble them the right way and the background image will reveal a major plot point in the book. We’re not going to tell you where all of them are, but we will give you four—perhaps they will lead you to more.
