So we’re back, with another installation of a story I’d like you to go read, because I loved it a lot. It’s called “I’ll Gnaw Your Bones, the Manticore Said” and it’s by Cat Rambo. I love how delicately it’s done, and how gently. And yet, right there, hard topics but humanely handled instead of jabbed at you. Characters being complex and people-like. Very nice.

Absolutely magic. It had me at "a lens-and-clockwork basilisk." But you’re right; better even than the world we’re shown is the way the people within it act. And the underlying question, left only partly answered…a common enough theme but dealt with very well.
