‘The Teb Hunter’ by Allen M. Steele

leave a comment »

To me, Allen Steele is pretty much synonymous with boring stories set in orbit. So this is a bit of a change: a boring story set on Earth. Our nameless narrator goes into the woods with a sterotypical hunter called Jimmy Ray. Their prey? Bioengineered teddy bears, bought as pets and now living wild as pests. The story is about four pages long and by the second page it is obvious where it is going. A deeply inauspicious start to the anthology.
