The Superior Species

September 13, 2009 at 7:02 pm Leave a comment

I had this thought some years ago when I wrote this story. What if the Neanderthals were not the dumb louts we picture them to be? Perhaps they did not journey peacefully into extinction, but were driven there by a more populous cousin, out of envy. I wrote a story, The Superior Species, and it was published by Aphelion.
In my writing, I enjoy including some science fact as well as the products of my imagination to create stories of pure conjecture, but with a hint of believability. Of course, I select facts which support my story, but they are facts.
Recently, I read an article describing Neanderthal skeletons discovered exhibiting nicks in their bones made by thrown spears. Neanderthals never developed this type of weapon. Who attacked them?
Read this story and let me know your thoughts.
