This is a great short story. Worm posted it over at Haven, which was the first I'd ever heard of it. It was nominated for the 1991 Nebula award.

That was good. I particularly loved the line: "They can even sing by squirting air through their meat." I think I do that frequently while sleeping. :lol:
