    Summary

    A few years into his reign, Henry IV is troubled to learn of mystic attracting followers to his revels in the Forest of Hainault. Some say he's a saint or prophet, others that he's a vision of Christ himself. Many have noticed that he resembles the old king, Richard II.

    Prince Hal - always curious about the latest novelty - takes his friends to see, but his cynicism melts away in the presence of the charismatic, kingly figure, and so eventually does his sanity.

    Henry must take action to restore order to his family and his kingdom, but what chance does order stand against this powerful and delicious chaos?

    A reworking of Euripides' Bacchae in the world of medieval Christianity and Shakespeare's histories.

    Summary

    “You okay, Sergeant?” Billy says into the hush, the in and out of nicotine and tar.

    “No, Billy, I am not,” Dime says, closing his eyes and then finally turns, eyes still closed, and blows a perfect smoke ring into Billy’s face.

    Summary

    LaCroix tensed and placed the glass of blood down carefully. "Are you going to keep throwing Divia's name at my face whenever I say something you don't agree with? An effective tactic, albeit more ruthless than I would have given you credit for. I'm proud of you, Nicholas."

    Summary

    Sometimes Michelle sneaks away to the airlock. She opens the inner door and goes right up to the outer one, pressing her hand against the glass, feeling the cold through it. She doesn’t know why she’s looking – to search for signs of life, to try to figure out what the hell’s going on out there, to test her star-reading skills, to check how the plants are doing, to see the sky.
    To remind herself that there is some kind of world out there, still, and that she misses it, and that she’s going to return to it one day.

    Summary

    Paul Verlaine and Arthur Rimbaud spend a romantic winter in London together. The screamy, stabby, drunken sort of romantic.

    “Do it then!” Rimbaud yelled, tearing at his undershirt, baring his chest.
    "Stop it!” Paul screamed back. “Why cannot you understand? Selfish little fucking…I should stab you through the heart, if you had one.”
    “If I had one? What do you have in place of one, you pathetic drunk? An empty gin bottle?” Rimbaud started to laugh.

    Summary

    Another day, another dollar. Or in my case, another day, another trip to rummage through zombie infested Seattle looking for food for survivors. Not quite as catchy, I’ll grant you, but more accurate given that ever since the existence of zombies in America became public knowledge and all out war broke out, scavenging for supplies had pretty much become my day job.
