Appeared in Faerie Tales edited by Martin H Greenberg and Russel Davis
My creepy take on the brewery of eggshells tale. The title is from a Martin Luther quote regarding changelings, and how they are but a piece of flesh as they have no soul.
“Nowhere in the twelve original stories in this anthology is there room for cute. There is an edge to all of them…[A Piece of Flesh] is a chilling piece as it is a first person narration and the question arises as to [the main charcter’s] reliability as a witness and the reality she relates.”
“The very best of the collection, though, was the powerful and chilling story, “A Piece of Flesh” by Adam Stemple, about a family with a baby who does not appear to be their own.”
