Content:

Years before the still born Second Life, our Hiro Protagonist, one of the creators of the so called metaverse, finds his creation infested with an existence threatening drug.

It's interesting how every universe science fiction writers invent tends to be attacked by a devastating menace in variable forms.

Neal Stephenson's "Snow Crash" is a good read. For those at very front of the digital band wagon it might be not advanced enough anymore, but for the average reader who is not into WOW for example, this is still a futuristic novel.
