Flows Their Blood, the Policeman Said

Here’s an excerpt from Ken MacLeod’s new story “Earth Hour”:

Angus stood up, blood-drenched from head to foot, knife in hand, arms wrapped awkwardly around the two ice buckets, from which the victims’ hair and foreheads grotesquely protruded.

The copper halted in the doorway, taking in the scene in about a second.

Before you click the link, first try to guess the cop’s reaction.

    I’m guessing the cop gets extremely pissed for stumbling across what is obviously a non-union shop trying to steal his work away.

    Just prior:

    Angus: “‘e wae not really a man.”

    And then:

    Copper: “Angus Podgorny, what do yae mean?”
