The Diary of a Chimeranologist: Fragment One

“The Hybridus Humanoids or ‘Monster Women’ that we write about are but a shadow of this planet’s immense biodiversity, as all across the globe there are species just waiting to be discovered.” These are not the sentiments of some wretched Fantasy author in the Modern Era. No, this is the 19th century, and the proverbial determination of one aristocratic Kikimora to travel beyond her home to discover all that the world has to offer.
