Years after the events described in the novel Lament for the Fallen, Joshua asks his son, Isaiah, to tell him a story. Isaiah tells of the myth of Usan Abasi, who was punished by the Sky God to spend eternity in the form of a brass bowl and imprisoned within a vast termite mountain. Now the ceremony which ensures that Usan Abasi remains dormant has failed and his ancient evil awakes.
A stand-alone short-story set in the city of Ewuru and linking Lament for the Fallen to a forthcoming novel.
