I'm trying to remember the title of a science fiction story, where the following are part of the story:
- An ape, gorilla or some other creature, probably named Al, who may or may not have set fire to the lab at the end of the story.
- Al is somewhat disfigured.
- The surrogate mothers are cows (could be some other animals)
- The babies are humans.
This is a full length sci fi novel which was published between 1970-1998.
Does someone know the title of this novel?
