The fabled city of beetle-drawn carriages is occupied by a foreign power, and that country is at war with another.

This story originally appeared in IGMS in 2013, where it won a reader's choice award. It was later reprinted by Fantastic Stories of the Imagination. I've written a lot of short fiction since then, but this one still makes the archaeologist in me very happy. True story: I was nearly abandoned at Mesa Verde once because everyone else was tired of me staring at the postholes when there were "more interesting" things to see.

Jossian is an apprentice librarian, a public-facing human in a library staffed primarily by constructs. Still a child, she is the only one small enough to enter the library tunnels when one of those constructs gets stuck on its track. She learns that the tunnels hide more chaos than the masters of the library will admit.
