At first the illness was contained to the miners, but now it has begun to spread to the townsfolk. The established and self-assured doctor Littlewood is having little success with his reverse orchiectomy treatment. When a rival appears in the form of the enigmatic and puritanical Dr Waterman and his belief in the unity of hard science with religious devotion, Littlewood grows nervous. He will need to start sourcing his glands from a creature orders of magnitude greater in evolution than kangaroos if he is to have any chance of maintaining his esteemed position.
The disillusioned Fanny finds hope within Waterman’s reforms. He brings with him the promise of a better town and a person to read her short story about a stallion. She may finally have found a reason to stay.
Until the sick start to devour the living.
Fanny will have to take a radical approach to healthcare if she is to get out of town alive.
