Rag and Bone at Tor.com

“I leave Gabriel in the yard and go into town, taking my bag with the vials of skin and bone, flesh and blood, my regular delivery to Makin. The Rag and Bone. Illustrated by John Jude PalencarPeels are looking for body parts.

I love the grandeur of The Strand. High towers of ornate stone. The road’s packed with wagons and carts. Boats choke the river. The Mersey is the city’s blood and it runs rich. Liverpool lives again.”

My new story, “Rag and Bone”, is now available in full at Tor.com

The beautiful illustration is by John Jude Palencar.

My grateful thanks to Ellen Datlow and the good people at Tor.com for taking this story.

More about how and why I wrote “Rag and Bone” can be found at this page of my blog.
