Wolfe's comments from the Introduction to Endangered Species

There was no comment about this story in the introduction.

Summary

A two-person scientific expedition to an alien planet finds themselves in a situation out of fantasy.

Analysis

  • Lukora and her people may be werewolves. Meirax may have been bitten, since she goes to hunt with Lukora's brother at the end. The initial syllable "Lu" sounds like "loup" (French word for wolf). More tentatively, "loup que aurra" translates as "wolf that will have" -- perhaps Lukora will possess the narrator?

Unresolved Questions

  • What is the significance of the old sword in the clearing?
