The Colonel's Tiger

Man-Kzin Wars VII Short story by Hal Colebatch, published in Man-Kzin Wars VII (1995).

The mysterious reports from the Angel's Pencil, detailing the anatomy and physiology of the attacking Kzin, trigger a memory of an ARM agent. After a little searching, he finds the account of a Colonel Vaughn, who battled with a "tiger man" in India during the earth year 1878. A blend of Gothic horror story, hard SF, Victorian detective story and a hint of Kipling.
