Another short vignette in Genge’s ‘Children of the Waste’ series. Brother Beussy, intent on recompense for the cultural colonialism sins of his forebears, is willing to (nay, almost welcoming of) risk his life out from under the safety of the dome of Paris. In the wasteland, he comes a cropper, and there is some bartering to be done, between himself and one from the wasters, and between himself and indeed himself.
