    Summary

    When Jon steps into the past it’s a dreary Monday, and his childhood bully, Evan Pritchard, has just stolen ‘A Guest for Mr. Spider’ from him. He’s shaking, whether it be from waking in media res, or from the shock of the Leitner's spell being broken. His ears are filled with a buzzing static as the scene replays just as he remembers.

    Or,

    Jon's side of things in "A Break in the Clouds"

    Summary

    The front door shut him onto the porch. It was still sunny outside. He’d lost enough blood that he didn’t register the warmth. He deluded himself into imagining he’d heard the slam of the cab door, the song of someone swearing. He listed onto his side, and the midday sky was full of stars, the hunter scattered into swinging pinpricks of light.

    Or: Gerard Keay and Michael Crew (ages sixteen through twenty-three), old stories, gravity, and seven years’ worth of things unsaid.

    Summary

    If Wright, or The Eye or anything cared enough to stop him, they would have done so already. They had already gotten what they wanted out of him, and now he was trembling with the awful dread of what he had to do next.

    Summary

    “I’m eight.” the kid sniffs as if eight was any different from four, maybe not an unspeakable horror then, just a regular horror. “And I heard that the Magnus Institute deals with-” his little nose scrunches, cute. “-spooky things.”

    “Do you have a-” he cracks a grin, and then rethinks it as small hands tighten against their burden.”-spooky thing to deliver?” gods he hopes not, it’s bad enough when adults walk in and lay out all of their baggage, but for a child-

    “There’s a spider in this book.” the kid says solemnly, raising his textbook sized parcel. “It ate Evan Pritchard.” a bloody fucking Leitner. Of course an eight year old would find a murder spider book. “This seemed like the best place to bring it.”

    Summary

    The road to hell is paved with good intentions. In this case, hell is Mount Massive Asylum, a mental institution owned by the corrupt and powerful Magnus Corporation. Everyone knows that something terrible is being done there, but attempts to uncover the secrets may only serve to unravel everything further.

    Gerard tries to right the wrongs his mother committed. Basira searches for her partner and finds far more than she could ever have anticipated. Martin attempts to keep himself alive to find someone he can only hope isn’t dead. Melanie investigates the asylum after receiving a message about the events happening there.

    All four have good intentions, but on the road they’re on, there’s no way to go but down.

    Summary

    There was a voice in the Institute hallways. Strange, with an uneven cadence, but gentle. Gerry tried not to listen to it. The words it spoke were kind and lighthearted and for all his pretense of nonattachment, his chest ached. But he couldn’t help hearing, and it was soothing, and it came as a relief when he was waiting, worried and afraid, outside Gertrude Robinson’s door. He counted himself lucky that he didn’t know who the voice belonged to.
    And then, of course, he did.

    In which there is pining, a brief encounter with the Buried, and roughly more or less what the title says.

    Summary

    Gerry's seen word processors built for impossible, overwhelming, and nauseating languages; chat bots that nearly perfectly mimic loved ones; meditation programs that completely shut off all real-world sensory inputs--name it, he’s destroyed it, save for one.

    This, though, this--this thing he’s staring at now, in the middle of a perfectly reasonable, if unsettlingly empty rendering of old-world Siberia, it’s weird, and not in a standard Leitner way. It doesn’t fit this wide, overwhelming, barren landscape. It doesn’t fit anything. It’s all disconnected pixels and glitching particle effects, somehow surrounding him and converging into a form at the same time.

    (Gerry's a decker. Michael's a glitch that haunts corrupted programs.)

    Summary

    “And… this?” In a stride, Michael was nearly pressed against him, warm enough to be a relief in the cold of the drafty room. His fingers were playing with Gerry’s cravat, long and elegant, tracing the knot with almost practiced precision.
    For all Gerry’s stillness, he tilted his chin up just a fraction, and when he met Michael’s eyes the boy was smirking. “Are you … trying to seduce me?” asked Gerry.

    in which Gerry is sweetly divested of his money and his clothes, but not like that.

    Summary

    Michael asked Gerard if he might want to give his statement for the record and though he's refused Gertrude so many times--he can't seem to say no to the tall, giggling blond archival assistant. Even if remembering his mother makes him want to vomit or burn something, but being around Michael is...nice.

    “Jon,” Martin’s voice is strained, “You just killed and ate an old lady.”

    “Yeah, well.” Jon pauses. He opens his mouth, closes it, and opens it again, “We all have bad days.”
