"Surely you're not frightened of death, Padre," Galley shouted down at me, pitching his voice to cut through the white noise clouding every transmission. He gestured mockingly with one hand and leant into the terrible pull of the planet. I ignored him, gritted my teeth and kept climbing. Afraid, no. Terrified. Death drove me on -- well, one man's death at least -- and it had led me here.

Alarm bells rang.Common enough in a state of Anthozoan war. Tocsins echoing: warning of collisions imminent or induline spore clouds and polyps drifting and falling like death.But this clamour was different, urgent and strange.

I was born mad. Crazy. Born with teeth and snapping. Bit the old doctor's finger, tasted blood before milk, suckled hard, gave a little pain before I let the world have my tears. My mum says that's all the child I was allowed, that moment of insolence. Didn't stop her treating me like one. Didn't stop the thrashings I got.

"Ah, it seems I've lost a bet, my friend. I thought you wouldn't reach us before the darkness." "A bet?"Tone was bent over, coughing. "Yes a bet. We've been watching your progress for the past twenty minutes. Few travel these days and you were a point of interest and a point of wager." She patted the money bag on her belt ruefully. "Good for you. Bad for me, I lose eight Draven coin."

The carousel spun, so alien and familiar, I laughed and touched her face and kissed her lips, and gazed at the wonder in her brilliant, beautiful eyes. Doctors had discovered the first one in a tissue sample in a New York hospital; a carousel careening amongst cancer cells. Pedologists in a research station at the New South Wales town of Armidale found the second. Then they were everywhere.

Cold winds blow across the dark hills some miles north of here and brush chill lips against the scattered and yellow bones of my father. I picture them there, in the goblin-field of my memory, wind and beast-gnawed bones, and I mourn the loss of everything that I held dear. Lost so long ago to the sigh and sorrow of those cold dark hills.
