    Summary

    Bucky Barnes was the most notorious mobster in the tri-state area. Nicknamed ‘The Tank’ for his ruthlessness, his tall strong build, monstrous strength, and his near bottomless stomach. It was seen as almost the kiss of death to open an eatery in the area…too bad no one told Chioma.

    Summary

    So you know how "affair with the ground" is a meditation on the ways in which marriage, sex, and reproduction are connected? And you know how "affair with the ground" uses "marriage" to cover, like, every reproductive and quasi-reproductive interaction, even when it's absolutely nothing like what you or I might think of as marriage, out of respect for the sensibilities of a notional child audience?

    This is like that, except that instead of "marriage," the word of the day is "fucking." Other tonal attributes have been shifted accordingly. Strap in; it's a wild ride.

    — Так что нужно мистеру Нанси?
    Койот уставился на него, а затем рассмеялся — высоким, лающим смехом, похожим на те звуки, что доносились из пустыни.
    — Ананси? Ананси ничего не нужно. Ананси мёртв.

    Summary

    The man-who-was-Coyote watched him, his eyes glinting yellow in the lamplight for an instant before they looked black-brown again. “Sent me here for you. Anansi.”

    “What does Mr. Nancy need?”

    Coyote laughed. It was a high laugh, with yips like the ones Shadow had heard out beyond the grass. “Anansi? Anansi needs nothing. Anansi is dead.”

    Summary

    In which Gabriel is alive, and upset with his older brother, and Lucifer has a talk with a Goddess who might change the outcome of the whole war.

     

    “Greetings, little bird.”

    The voice is soft, gentle, and kind, but it holds a sharp edge to it that make Lucifer freeze. He doesn't recognise the voice, nor does he recognise the presence, but he does know the tone. It's weary and wary, exhausted, as though it's owner has had a very long day. He turns to face the owner of the voice, and is startled when he sees the woman.

    She has black hair twisted into a braid, with gleaming black feathers at the end. Her skin is dark, and she's leaning slightly on a walking stick as she eyes him. “I am no bird,” he tells her, and she laughs.
