A pair of physicians observe the bizarre and dying practices of their profession’s predecessor, the remedy man.

Genre: Fantasy, Science Fiction


The wounded man, his wife, the vulnerary, and the two physicians made their way out of the kitchen and into the yard where the chickens were still pecking away at their breakfast. It was winter, but a mild one. The risen sun had already baked the chill out of the ground and the air. The vulnerary coaxed a rooster toward his patient. The wounded man gripped his wounded arm with his opposite hand. He held his arm out as the vulnerary corralled the rooster toward it.

“I’m afraid I must object,” one of the physicians said.

Episode Art Description: Digital drawing.  A rooster seen in right profile, facing right, standing amidst thin patches of grass. Emerging from out of frame at top right is a forearm, fingers lightly curled, held steady by the opposite hand, as if being presented to the rooster. A long deep gash runs vertically from just above the inside of the wrist along the arm. A light silhouette of tools and other objects are seen in the background.
