Story of the week

1. The Client

It wasn’t much to go on, he said. I looked over the desk at him, peered past my feet and the bottle. You’ve got to say that for the Big Fellah’s pets...

10. Angels One Five

Somewhere over Great Bend, Ka. I acquired an escort. More friends from the CBI, but no old pals, this time. I waggled my wings as we passed a...

11. Talk to Me

‘Talk to me, son.’ For the first time in my life I understood the word avuncular. Uncle Uriel’s face was close to mine and I felt as though if I just...

12. Play It, Sam

Uriel’s face was as stony as a dry river bed when I told him I’d go back down, but only after I’d spoken to Samael. ‘Don’t waste too much time, Gabe...

13. What Makes Sammy Run

After more experimental music, Albert began to play something relatively melodic and I saw Samael walk in. He ordered a strawberry milkshake from...

15. Pop Goes the Weasel

The public conveniences in the bar of the American Hotel were in keeping with the theme of the place. Certainly they smelled like they hadn't been...

2. Goin' Down

20. Long Necked Bottles

'He always does that,' a smoky, smoker's voice came from beside my other elbow. I'd been staring into the mirror behind the bar and not seeing...

21. Maid in Heaven

Rings in my pocket, I headed over to Fort McNair. At the very end of the harbour was a bait and tackle shop with restrooms for customers. It was no-...

22. Cat's in the Cradle

Every Hellavator Station is inconvenient. The one on South Revelation Row in 3rd Heaven is just insane. I saw a painting in Rotterdam once that...

23. Chocolate Jesus

Bay 101 was a hobo's paradise. Right next to it were the worldly goods he may or may not have renounced. Who knew where he'd got the Wal-Mart...
