A family of dragons gathers on the occasion of the death of their father, the elder Bon Agornin. As is custom, they must eat the body. But even as Bon's last remains are polished off, his sons and daughters must all jostle for a position in the new hierarchy. While the youngest son seeks greedy remuneration through the courts of law, the eldest son - a dragon of the cloth - agonises over his father's deathbed confession. While one daughter is caught between loyalty to her family by blood and her family by marriage, another daughter follows her heart - only to discover the great cost of true love... Here is a Victorian story of political intrigue, family ties and political intrigue, set in a world of dragons - a world, quite literally, red in tooth and claw. Full of fiery wit, this is a novel unlike any other.

This new collection of short stories from T.C. Boyle finds him at his mercurial best. Inventive, wickedly funny, sometimes disturbing, these are stories about drop-outs, deadbeats and kooks. Take the man who shares his apartment with a wildcat won in a drunken bet; the drive-time shock jock hallucinating from sleep deprivation for a publicity stunt; the suburban woman who joins a pack of dogs, eating rabbits and baying at the moon. With a unique deftness of touch and a keen eye for the telling detail, Boyle has mapped the strange underworld of America.

Assigned to help evacuate the planet Ntigano before the total failure of its sun, the crew of the Starship Enterprise are engaged in delicate negotiations with the only people who can help them: a proud and volatile neighbouring race known as the Tsorans. To assist their efforts, Riker and Worf are assigned a different diplomatic task. As a show of friendship and good faith, they are serving as honor guards to a young Tsoran prince, accompanying him to a royal hunting preserve. There, a combination of technology-damping fields and some of the galaxy's deadliest predators are supposed to test the skills of the young Tsoran noble in the 'kaphoora' - the hunt. When their shuttlecraft crashes inside the preserve, however, what should have been a civilised formality turns into a terrifying struggle for survival. Cut off from both Tsora and the Enterprise, without the benefit of either tricorders or phasers, Riker, Worf and their royal charge must fight for their lives with the only resources they have: spear and bat'leth - tooth and claw.

While the problem of evil remains a perennial challenge to theistic belief, little attention has been paid to the special problem of animal pain and suffering. This absence is especially conspicuous in our Darwinian era when theists are forced to confront the fact that animal pain and suffering has gone on for at least tens of millions of years, through billions of animal generations. Evil of this sort might not be especially problematic if the standard of explanations for evil employed by theists could be applied in this instance as well. But there is the central problem: all or most of the explanations for evil cited by theists seem impotent to explain the reality of animal pain and suffering through evolutionary history. Nature Red in Tooth and Claw addresses the evil of animal pain and suffering directly, scrutinizing explanations that have been offered for such evil.
