Summary
An assassin-in-training reflects on his past as he devours the price of his ascension to power. The nature of reality is in flux as a man tries to convince himself what he's experiencing is merely an illusion, and something is rotten in Victorian London. One man's automobile is another's bloody end, and a dear, departed father passes down the most detestable of gifts to his son. One man saves a world at the cost of another's heart, and the English find the most reasonable way to meet their needs in the worldwide food shortage. Science fiction. Thriller. Fantasy. Americana and Japanese folklore; all these genres and more make their appearance in the premier short story collection
