THE SILVER SUMMONER’S BELL
I felt my brother die.
Two days later a man collecting dung for fuel found Mac’s teeth in a pile of dragon scat. He cleaned and polished them and returned them to me with his condolences.
I sent him away with a fat reward and a knife of my father’s design that was worth much more than the money I’d given him.
No one ever found my brother’s gun.
That was no surprise. A custom-crafted Turnbull gun would be a prize for any collector and trade in such a weapon would have been conducted in the shadows and off the grid. I had passed the word that I would buy it, no questions asked, should it ever come on the market, but so far there had been no nibbles at my bait.
