The Least Detailed Plans of a Great & Complicated Apparatus

The Least Detailed Plans of a Great & Complicated Apparatus

An ancient skull gradually subsumes Dr. Jolly Frye’s time, talents—and mind. Is it possession, madness, or something else altogether?

An all new tale of exquisite surgical fiction from the mind of Edison McDaniels. Read by the author.

This story first appeared in the 2016 anthology The Night Bazaar: Eleven Haunting Tales of Forbidden Wishes and Dangerous Desires, edited by Lenore Hart. The Night Bazaar is available in print and ebook right now. The second volume of the anthology will be published later this year.
