More disease-metaphorical grotesque horror goodness, with the addition of a few intriguing peeks into the characters' personal lives; very enjoyable!
Under the Knife by Brandon Seifert

“There ain't a man in the world cares about a woman's past until he's thinking of her in his future.”
Dru Pagliassotti, Clockwork Heart

Dru Pagliassotti, Clockwork Heart

"There is nothing hidden about it," he replied. My objective is obvious. I've decided I'd rather have you describe me as 'sweet' than a 'slagging pain in the tailset.'"
"Really?"
