    Summary

    Michael Shelley has never been to the Archivery. He has never had memories pulled from his head. He has never met the Archivist's apprentice.

    Which doesn't explain why there's a whole row of the apprentice's books in the Archivery vault, with Michael's name on their spines.

    Title and chapter names taken from Edna St. Vincent Millay's Collected Poems.

    Summary

    Kuguri has been a binder for as long as he can remember. It's not the most honest work, but for the most part he doesn't regret it, especially not when it brings him Shibayama, a small farmer boy who wants to do nothing but forget. He lets himself become more and more wrapped up in Shibayama's life, forgetting that he, too, can become a memory.

    Summary

    { Il Rilegatore - Bridget Collins/ Spoiler }
    Quella voce mi tiene ancorato alla realtà, con i piedi ben piantati a terra. Mi impedisce di crollare con le ginocchia contro il pavimento, di impattare contro il legno umido e incrostato di muffa. [...] Trovo il coraggio di alzare la testa, incontrando i suoi occhi intensi ed esitanti che mi fissano, come se si aspettasse qualcosa da me, qualcosa che non credo di poter donare.
    Eppure … voglio provarci, perché voglio provarci? Cosa significa per me?
    Niente, che domande. Allora perché non voglio arretrare?
    Sbatto le palpebre e il mondo intorno a me si offusca.

    Summary

    Fear is hard to overcome. It can be anything--fear of the unknown, fear of what lies beyond your bedroom door, or fear of what's in the community swimming pool. (Probably just some old lady's foot fungus, but who knows what else?) For Emmett, he fears being alone, without Lucian, but Lucian's there to make him feel just a tiny little bit better.

    Summary

    As Lucian was supporting Emmett down the steps of yet another charlatan’s practice, the nurse ran out after them.

    “There’s nothing the doctor can do for him,” she said, throwing a furtive glance towards the doctor’s front door.

    “He made that clear, thank you,” Lucian snapped. The pity in her eyes grated like nails on chalkboard.

    “No, you don’t understand: no doctor can,” she insisted. “Don’t you see? This is not an illness of the body.”

    “Pardon?” he asked by reflex, even though deep down he already knew what she was going to say. Of course.

    Of course, he should have known.

    “It’s a binder he needs.”
