Stormchaser By Michele Dutcher

That was a strange story. A planet where pigs are on the top of the food chain and eat people? Strange. They might have the intelligence, especially if they're slightly different to our pigs, but how do they manage without hands?

I must admit, though, I liked the two aliens; they're a little crazy, but no crazier than human tornado chasers.

All in all, a most enjoyable story.

You think it's hard to eat humans without opposable thumbs, just try drinking margaritas!  That's why it's great to have an amigo like Shalar. ;)

Re: Stormchaser By Michele Dutcher

I can't stand it...I created a planet called Azovitron 6 and someone sent it to a list of planets from Sci Fi. Now it's like it's my own private world. When we get to Azovitron, if it really does have a sixth planet orbiting it, am I automatically queen of that world or something?

Presumably not unless you typed that last comment with trotters.

Okay...maybe I meant like a sacrificial queen...and there's this guy who's a pig mutant (yeah, that's the ticket) and he rescues me using only an apple and it turns out he's really...

I liked the sense of humor that ran through the piece -sometimes light and playful, sometimes dry and witty.
