innovation, death, sorcery and meaning

Two short, triumphant fantasy stories about well-worn prophecies and magical customs that take a left turn. "Another End of the Empire" by Tim Pratt (audio version): "The probability witches hit an impasse." A short story by Dyce (a.k.a. Sarah Blackwell): "No, I was resigned to death. I was only angry that my death would be so meaningless."

"No, I'll find another way. The key here is innovation."
Dire words, indeed.

I LOVE the "innovation" SO much.

I really like both of these. I've seen the premise for the first one tossed around a few times, it's nice to see it fleshed out like this.
