I'm trying to find the title of a science fiction novel I read, in hardcover probably in the late 70's.
All I can remember is that it was your typical story of the characters fighting a world-wide pandemic on Earth. The key difference in this novel was that the way the virus worked is that the infected became promiscuous, which then spread the virus through the ensuing contact with other people.
This is not Colin Wilson's The Space Vampires (made into the movie Lifeforce). Nor is it any of Octavia E. Butler's stories (such as, Clay's Ark). It is strictly a pandemic story.
I thought the title actually was The Promiscuity Virus, but I can't find any hits. The funny thing is I can picture which shelf it was on in the public library. Maybe the author's last name is in the middle of the alphabet? I don't remember the author as being well-known.
I think the book cover was all words, no picture, possibly yellow. Or a comic book style cover! Which in my defense does have a lot of yellow in it.
