Today's definition is inspired by Robert J. Sawyer's Neanderthal trilogy, Hominids, Humans and Hybrids. (We couldn't go through the whole RJS week without mentioning Neanderthals!) It's a story of two parallel worlds -- a human one and a Neanderthal one. The story pivots around the romantic tension between a female human and male Neanderthal. How about that for spicing up the gene pool? And I wonder what their parents would think? Thanks to Rob for the great story, and the inspiration. ~ James

'There's no way a guy with a mono-brow is marrying my daughter!'
