When Professor Grey was invited to the mechanical biology symposium, he thought he had finally gained the respect of his peers. In truth, his colleagues simply could not be bothered. Their loss, for that was where the professor met the brilliant (and by all accounts sociopathic) Doctor Ileana Winthrop, and his mechanomorphosis began.
Told in epistolary form, Parts documents the journey of Professor Grey in his most remarkable mechanomorphosis. It originally appeared online, and is republished in complete form here.
The dragons held no sway over a people as great as the Rana. To prove it, they nailed a dragon to the walls of the city and left it to bleed, undying, for a decade. But no greatness trickled down to the children who lived in the shadow of the east gate, only the dragon’s blood. When Maharta learns what true suffering is, he sets out to end the dragon’s misery and atone for his people.
Far to the north of Delmyria, a loose coalition of clans and tribes known as the Kingdom of Korbuch is building an army. Each tribe sends their greatest warriors to join the Last Warband.
Mokat was given the greatest honor his tribe could bestow: he was chosen as their clan’s champion. But he resented being sent away from the war he knew while his enemies still stood. It felt too much like fleeing. And his axe had not drunk enough glory to flee so soon.
