Me and my robot.

We're big game hunters. And we're after the biggest game in the known universe.

The Pondoro Wolverine -- also known as the greer.

Smart. Fast. And deadly. The hunter who taught me to stalk them had to grow a new leg to replace the one a greer boar ripped off.

The greer fight to death -- and a little beyond -- because they have a great secret to protect. Which is all right with me and my robot.

That secret is the trophy we've come to collect.

Dead or alive...

About the Author:

William R. Burkett, Jr., 54, is a native of Georgia who grew up in Neptune Florida, and began writing when at age fourteen he given an ancient Smith-Coronatypewriter. His first science-fiction novel, Sleeping Planet, was published in ANA-LOG magazinewhen he was 20, and subsequently published in hardcover and paperback in the U.S. and abroad.

On the strength of being a publishedwriter, he was promoted to reporter at the Florida Times-Union in Jacksonville, Florida, beginning a career in journalism which led him from the Bahamas to Pennsylvania to the state of Washington. He continued to write creatively, and had some fiction and nonfiction

magazine sales. But he found journalism a beguiling mistress, due to the twin incentives of a steady paycheck and seeing his byline on page one.

In 1978 he left journalism for public relations, and was a public informationofficer for three different state agencies in Arizona and Washington state. He edited a monthly tabloid for the Arizona Game and Fish department, which "required" him to spend days on end out in the wilds with a gun or fishing rod, doing research. In Washington, he headed up a negotiating team which settled major litigation between the state and local Indian tribes over tribal sales of untaxed liquor. And he won a Clio, a Telly, and other writting awards for TV commercials which promoted traffic safety.

He left state service 1993 and returned to full-time fiction writing. Bloodsport, his second science-fiction novel, was published in 1998 by HarperPrism. He has two grown children, Beau and Heather. He and his wife, Wanda, live in the small logging community of Buckley, Washington, with a cranky cat and a gun-shy Lab retriever.
