Zip The Cambist and Lord Iron This is such a clever little piece. It focuses on a money exchanger; a character who would be lucky to make it into the background of most fantasy stories. But here, he is given a hero's quest of sorts, and performs admirably. Lord Iron gets a whim to ruin someone's life, and brings unknown bills to a cambist, demanding the exchange be made in 24 hours. The impossible task is performed quite cleverly, which, as with all heroic deeds, leads to the demand of more and more difficult deeds.This story is just really refreshing. It certainly belongs in a fantasy collection, in my opinion, despite no magic taking place. It has just that element of other-worldliness that makes it fit in just right.While it may be a bit heavy-handed, I liked the fact that the cambist was obsessed with adventure stories. The fact that he has begun living one is not too much pushed at, but most readers will recognize the little bit of humor.Available as a free audio production from Podcastle..

  • This is a short story, available free and legally free on the net Quite enjoyable The end was a bit hackneyed, but it was still a pleasure Almost felt like a Russian short story the humble, timid clerk vrs the corrupt and abusive figure of power The net result was that it steeled my resolve to read Abraham.
