executioners SF/Fantasy Quotable | May 15, 2013“He stared into the woman’s face, and she looked back with cold, dead eyes. She was a strange, mesmerizing creature trapped somewhere in the interstitial space between life and death, an unrelenting, inescapable limbo. She must have witnessed so much of history, so much of life, but seeing her here, now, seeing the coldness and indifference in her eyes, he wondered if she even understood how lucky she was. He could hardly conceive that this was the woman Aldous had described to him: almost a century old, bound by an ancient rite and powered by a clockwork engine devised long before his time.”—George Mann, The Executioner’s Heart
