DescriptionWinner of the World Fantasy Award 2019, Best Collection.
For fans of Ken Liu and Gene Wolfe.
Khaim, the last city of a once-great empire, clings to life.
This is a world poisoned by its addiction to magic . Every time a spell is cast, toxic bramble sprouts, bursting forth from tilled fields, thrusting up from between cobblestones. A bit of magic, and bramble follows until whole cities are consumed by tangling vines . Armies hack and burn... yet in a world that can't give up magic's sweet succour, the bramble can't be stopped .
When Jeoz the alchemist discovers a potent new weapon to wield against the bramble, his invention promises Khaim freedom from fear and starvation . But these are twisted times and the bramble is not the only corruption that blights the land .
