Needle and Thread
by Chad Horlock
A ruthless knight and some travellers encounter each other; a pariah picks up his feet and falls; and surly leadership incites rebellion. A sampling of three stories explore wit, charm, lunacy, and discord among strangers, friends, and rulers. The lessons learned, each soul hopes, get them through another day in the world. Then, take a bird's eye view with Holly as the world erupts and explodes.
