"I love these stories"
Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Hugo- and Nebula-award winning author of The Fey
ELVES WENT INTO THE WEST-TO AMERICA.
GENERATIONS LATER, ORCS FOLLOWED.
1927 Detroit. Orcs fight Prohibition, avoid police, and labor hard for their children. All while doing their best to navigate the narrow human world. Men drive fancy Dodges and Cadillacs; orcs squeeze into fourth-hand Model Ts. Dwarves dominate the skilled trades; orcs push brooms. And behind everything, elves make it their life's work to deny orcs have worth.
To be an orc is to endure, but when the world tries to deny even that, an orc must act.
And Uruk-Tai will do anything for his family.
This long-demanded collection includes all the Prohibition Orcs tales-Spilled Mirovar, Final Gift, Drowned Mirovar, Witness November, Degreased Hopes, Woolen Torment, and the never before published A Debt of Meat.
With an introduction by Robert Jeschonek, author of My Favorite Band Does Not Exist
