Read an Excerpt

Chapter One

It felt good to plop down on my stomach in an easy chair, let my wings flop loosely by my side, and just enjoy the programming. I couldn't help myself. I had to watch TV in the evenings. It was addictive. Then again, I felt I deserved it after working as a detective on days that too often needed overtime.

Usually I'd tune into one of the Earth stations. Thank goodness, there was plenty of bleed-through from Earth broadcasts, even though I felt their equipment was primitive compared to ours. It was enough to make me glad that I lived in the Sixty-third Century. However, I could judge by their recent progress that they'd soon surpass us in technology, which was pretty amazing for humans who were in only their Twenty-first Century. After all, we didn't have to invent so many things as humans did because we had greater strength and could already fly. In fact, that was partly why we left Earth centuries ago.

Fortunately, our bodies were rugged enough for us to migrate from Earth to withstand the rigors of Venus when our ancestors recognized the danger of two oh-so-different societies attempting to live on the same world in peace. It just wasn't going to happen, especially when some of our worst criminals liked to pick on the humans and eat them just for the fun of it. Though we were bigger and far stronger, the humans outnumbered us greatly and they reproduced far faster. As well, they had already reached a level of technology that made it possible for them to defend themselves, as well as wage war upon us. If we hadn't migrated, we could have been wiped out eventually, just like some of those criminals the humans caught andslaughtered.

Even so, it took several centuries for everyone to make the move. Consequently, some of the dragons, as humans call us, on Venus are a bit less fortunate in the ownership of land and such. Because of that, our society mirrors theirs in ways that the TV was now reflecting as humans slowly reached for the stars. Yeah, I watch TV for more than just entertainment. I also watch to see how humans are solving some of their problems in hopes of using those solutions in my job.
