The Man Whom People Love To Hate
“Ladies and gentlemen! All ye noble folks! Be welcome to Master Glencairn’s Flyin’ Freak Show!”
Beneath the winter sky over Boston, the smoke pillars rising from the mighty forges of the Atlantic Iron Works Society flattened against steel grey clouds and the chill tore into flesh like a freshly-sharpened cutlass.
