Night of the Manticore

Night of the Manticore
Abyss & Apex #33, Q1 2010. (fantasy novelette)

“What do you say, Fowler? Shall we show them a true manticore?”


Pi tells a marvelous story here that I enjoyed thoroughly. — Sam Tomaino, SFRevu

Tony Pi spins an engrossing Scientific and Magical Adventure that will amaze fans of history, thrillers, and fantasy stories alike. He expertly weaves the mythical creatures of Egypt and Greece with Alchemy, Magic, and Paleontology to produce characters and a world that the reader can easily and fully envision. Even more compelling than his world is his characters. Each character has their own feelings and mannerisms that come through regardless if they are a main character or a supporting character that plays a single role in the story. Night of the Manticore is a short story that will expand your imagination and bring up hidden dreams from your childhood, when you thought Sphinxes and Chimeras had really existed and roamed the ancient world. I highly suggest you head over to Abyss & Apex and read it today. — Matthew Denton, Novel Musings

My favorite stories this year [from Abyss & Apex] included, from the first quarter, Tony Pi’s “Night of the Manticore”, one of his enjoyable alternate-history-fantasy stories set in Lyonesse, this one about a resurrected manticore running amok. — Rich Horton, Year End Summaries 2010
