An Account of Six Poisonings

"I was a grinder, a blender, a crusher, a mulcher; I was a master of tubers. I mixed the tinctures and measured the powders that might cure or kill. (A single grain may be the difference between health and death.) Mine was a calling. A position of trust. I was the court's poisoner."


An Account of Six Poisonings is included in Weird Lies, a collection of short stories to be published by Arachne Press in September 2013.
