"We are chaos. We are the teeth of dragons, shed like seeds."

"The Testimony of Dragon's Teeth" (Uncanny, March/April 2018) is a brief new addition to Sarah Monette's bookish, M.R. James-ian or Carnacki/John Silence-like series of occult investigation short stories, "The Necromantic Mysteries of Kyle Murchison Booth," several others of which are online: "Wait for Me," "The Replacement," "White Charles," "The Yellow Dressing Gown," and "To Die For Moonlight." Monette is perhaps more well-known for writing The Goblin Emperor as Katherine Addison, under which name she has also co-written with Elizabeth Bear an upcoming historical mystery (relevant to her research specialty) that has sometimes been called, "Kit Marlowe, Boy Detective."
