I remember a while ago reading about a book/story by some author that I thought was Fred Saberhagen, but I can't find anything in his bibliography.

It was supposed to be about a post apocalyptic world where people have lost technology and are being attacked by dragons. The catch is that the dragons were supposed to actually be automated attack drones defending a nearby Air Force base. The title had the word Kill in it somewhere.

I can't find anything myself either because I'm inept or it was a really obscure book. Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks. Found it. Killbird by Zach Hughes. No idea how I got Fred Saberhagen from that.

  • You might be interested in The Iron Dragon's Daughter by Michael Swanwick. It is not the book you read, but there is a thematic link. – Lexible Oct 8 '14 at 16:06
  • I found that book while searching for this one and it did seem interesting. I'll check it out. Killbird turned out to be fairly short so I read it last night. – Samuel Bass Oct 8 '14 at 21:30
  • Iron is one of the more memorable fantasy reads in recent years... – Lexible Oct 9 '14 at 4:17
  • Read The Iron Dragon's Daughter today and I have to say it was pretty darn good. – Samuel Bass Oct 10 '14 at 0:37
  • Wow! You gobbled that right up... I read it... then kept the book... and read it again about a year later. I may give it a third read at some point. :) It's chewy. :) – Lexible Oct 10 '14 at 21:05
