Coli-nfaran and Klarin-yal have a problem: their clanship's new leader wants to make the Choosaraf into a pirate-hunter instead of a merchant craft, and the hothead probably isn't any good at it. The only way they can save their ship and home is to raise enough money to buy it out from under Daz-Ral. Volunteering as experimental subjects will make enough cash, but why is the job so profitable? It can't be that easy, for so much money...
This never-before-published Kintaran story is set long before Kinahran was even a glimmer in her mother's eyes. It contains implied adult situations and baby Kintarans, and is suitable for teenagers and up.
About the Author
Elizabeth McCoy's fiction has appeared in Marion Zimmer Bradley's Sword and Sorceress #7, in the "Best In Show" anthology by Sofawolf*, and in the fanzine "Pawprints" (published by Conrad Wong & T. Jordan Peacock). Her tabletop RPG writing is published by Steve Jackson Games. As her author bios in SJ Games' material continually state, she lives in the Frozen Wastelands of New England, with a spouse, child, and assorted cats. She hopes that her work will be enjoyed, and is always a bit awkward about referring to herself in the third person. *Best in Show has been re-published as: "Furry!: The Best Anthropomorphic Fiction!"
