Smilodon by James Paddock

Tigers in the wild and a lucrative fee lure freelance writer Zechariah Price into the frozen mountains of Montana. The assignment drops him into a world of Bengal tigers, illegal aliens, prehistoric sabertooth cats, and psychic premonitions. As the possibility of death by man and animal surrounds him, he quickly learns that he too is destined to become food for the cats. Trapped between man and beast, his assignment turns into that of survival.

Smilodon intertwines the exciting possibility and nightmarish reality of cloning in an age in which advanced genetic engineering is rapidly evolving. "Consider the very real possibility of cloning your recently deceased pet," says the author. "We are on the brink of just such a thing. If after your pet, what about your child, or an entire genetically engineered perfect society?" Smilodon will send one back to thinking, "What if?"

A desktop publisher and graphic artist by trade, James Paddock's greatest love is still his writing. Hooked by the immediate sale of his first short story in 1993, he has been writing a little every day since. Following a navy career and another twelve years in South Carolina, he has returned to his native ground in the scenic mountain country of Big Sky, Montana, where plot, ideas and quirky characters are in abundance. He currently lives there with his wife, Penny, and cat, Cricket. Mr. Paddock is busy working on his next novel.
