The Alchemist

The Alchemist - Paolo Bacigalupi What a powerful little novella! This is the second that I've read by this author and I must say that I am impressed. Bacigalupi has managed to write an insightful, fully fledged and charming story in less words than it takes some authors to write a prologue. I noticed earlier that there's a sort of companion book called The Executioness. I have a copy so I may as well see if it lives up to this one's promised brilliance.
