A war is being fought between two human factions in the Fomalhaut system. Spirey is crew on the Mouser, which is on a hunter-killer mission chasing a crippled enemy ship. Both sides are using semi-intelligent machines known as Wasps to help in the war, while genetic engineering has been used to modify humans: Yarrow, Mouser's pilot has a mermaid tail instead of legs. What looks like a routine mission escalates as the real war is gradually revealed. A classic. ( )
