Scientist Harry Dunston grows weary of his employer Pyko Tech. He sells out their secrets to a journalist, takes the money, and runs.
But when he wakes to a ringing phone, he realises that escaping Pyko will take all his strength. And then some. A mind-bending tale that slips down into another world, a shadow world, below our own. Copperworld: a short story.
