The Artificer’s Apprentice

Can a man fashion justice as he would a clock?

Cast out of the craft hall in his prime and bitter from his many losses, a blind artificer has taken on an apprentice to make what he no longer can: a device that will enter him into the Grand Competition.

But does the artificer even want to win? Or does he only care about revenge? And will that be enough?

The Artificer’s Apprentice is a short story set in a medieval city where magic and technology blend seamlessly and where the Artificer guilds make handsome profits keeping the city’s systems running. The leaders of these guilds have complete control over their members, but one man is about to challenge that authority. Blind, frail, and destitute, the embittered artificer could not be that much of a threat, could he?
