A doctor, curious about a mysterious death, an acquaintance's strange behavior, and a strange, almost unearthly, patient, enters a hidden forest deep in Brazil where an otherworldly power known as "the Flame" has caused evolution to follow alternate paths. What appear to be humans there are actually highly evolved jaguars, living in the abandoned cities of a previous people who once tried to harness the Flame. Connections are revealed between the acquaintance and the cat people, and it all comes to a head as they realize the mysterious Flame is flaring, and its radiation could poison the world.

Henry Kuttner USA (1914 - 1958) Husband of C L Moore

aka Keith Hammond, Lawrence O'Donnell, Lewis Padgett

Henry Kuttner was alone and in collaboration with his wife, the great science fiction and fantasy writer C.L. Moore, one of the four or five most important writers of the 1940's, the writer whose work went furthest in its sociological and psychological insight, to making science fiction a human as well as technological literature. He was an important influence upon every contemporary and every science fiction writer who succeeded him. In the early 1940's and under many pseudonyms, Kuttner and Moore published very widely through the range of the science fiction and fantasy pulp markets.--goodreads.com.
