Spree by Roderick D. Turner

This was . . . weird. Fun, though, and I very much liked the terse, present-tense style.; it moves very fast. I was a little surprised at the outcome; it wasn't what I might have expected, but that's a definite plus. And, strange to say, the use of all metric-system measurements added something to the setting, though I'm going to guess that some readers won't like that aspect of it. I could be wrong.

Fun little romp. Enjoy it.
I was raised by humans. What's your excuse?

Lester and I are seeing eye to eye on this one: it's a fun read - and the ending brings the story together very well. I like the spunkiness of the piece and the main characters. I like the females in the piece as well - too often they're a charicature, but the way they think seems very natural - and they figure things out eventually. Nice piece, good job.
Since the house is on fire - at least let us warm ourselves.
