Griffin's Lament

There was a piercing woman's shriek, and a black shape tumbled out of the sky. "Got another one," said DT. "Fuckin' bird-chicks."


"No, they ain't. Just random mixes. Generic chemicals."

"Chimeras," Darcy corrected. "I just don't understand why we have to kill them."

DT shrugged. "Eggheads say they're dangerous. I don't ask. Figure they got enough to study on 'em, and who cares about the rest?" A shadow passed overhead as he spoke. DT pointed. "Griffin!" He raised his bolt-thrower again.

Darcy closed her eyes as the bolt-thrower clicked and something thudded to the ground a hundred yards away.

Have you ever read anything by James Maxey? You might like him. He blends high fantasy with hard SF. Interesting stuff.

I read the review when you posted it. ;-) Haven't read the books as yet.
