Shepard, Lucius  
Beautiful Blood
The dominant feature of Teocinte's landscape is the massive, long-dormant body of an ancient dragon that exerts a powerful but mysterious influence on the surrounding area. Richard Rosacher is an ambitious young medical student who becomes fascinated by the properties inherent in the dragon's blood. His exploitation of those properties leads him from the shabbiest quarter of 1850s Teocinte to a morally ambiguous position of power, wealth, and influence. The story of Meric Cattanay's decades-long involvement with the dragon begins at roughly the same time, proceeding along parallel but independent lines that occasionally intersect.
