Looking for a story...

2009-02-26 Thread Andrew Crystall
I'm looking for a story I read - I think it was a short story. It 
features a grunt's eye view of an  attack on an alien position, with 
the attackers being aliens of the same species, but bred by Humans as 
part of their society.

Hi Nick.

I am reading this at db...@sbcglobal.net

But that address gets pass-thru from two other addresses:  
b...@alumni.caltech.edu  and b...@cts.com(I doubt those are listed on 
Brin-L but you might check.

Thanks for plowing through this.

As well as the many forms of life based on DNA that are known 
to science, the Earth may have been home to a second creation
