"A gossip! An airsucker!"

"Still he came up to look at the thing, lizard forebody, snakefish aftbody, and face like some caricature of an old woman."

He reached out a finger terminating in a nailclaw of uncommon dirtiness and bgan to do a slow stroking under the creatures shallow undertow, and after a moment the mouth pursed and a sucking noise was heard and a slow swelling began to grow beneath his stroking. Something like a bladder puffed and kept puffing."
