When Schanke is seriously wounded in a convenience store robbery, Nick is faced with taking on a new partner.

Lizards in the Grass was an Australian Forever Knight fanzine novel by Karen Miller, edited by Mary GT Webber. It was 145 pages long and published in January 1995. A second edition appeared in March 1995 to deal with formatting errors and "inaccuracies born of not seeing "Hunters" or "Dead Issue"."

Lizards in the Grass was nominated for a 1996 FanQ for best Forever Knight Stand-Alone Zine.

The title of zine comes from a poem by John Skelton (1502) that ends with "That when you think all danger for to pass, Ware of the lizard lithe lurking in the grass."

Author's ForewordEdit


Okay. Now for the big confession.

When Mary first told me about this show, I scoffed.

Yes. I did. Mea culpa, mea culpa and so forth.

Mary never could resist a challenge. She showed me a pilot two parter. I thought, well, it's okay. Nothing to write a 75,000 word novel about. I though Schanke was endearing. I thought LaCroix made a neat villain and had, in fact, a perfectly valid point of view. I thought Geraint Wyn Daives overcame being blond very well. And it was great to see Catherine Discher again.

Then Mary showed me "Feeding the Beast."

Holy Haemoglobin, Batman! Where did the hell that come from?

Here was a show full of characters who didn't have their shit together. We were talking -- God forbid -- three dimensional situations without happy endings. We were talking neat philosophical stuff like redemption, and self acceptance. The struggle to be human. Taking what you want, and then paying for it. The nature of love. Betrayal, of oneself and others.

Loneliness, and isolation, and the burden of feeling oneself to be on outsider.
