Fabbles: 0.5

(A book in the Fabbles series)
A Novella by

Meet the Scruffians, workhouse tykes and street arabs scrobbled by the Waiftaker General, dragged to the Institute and put to the Stamp that writes your very soul into your skin.

Meet the waifs of Ripper Vicky's Empire, Fixed forever as they are, never ageing, never starving, ever bouncing back to exactly how they were Fixed... the perfect child labour. Now escaped from their chimney sweep and mill owner masters, hiding out in their rookery cribs, surviving as thieves and beggars... and fighting back.

Meet Gobfabbler, the fabbler of this here crib, telling his fabbles of Christmas spirit and canine spifflication to an audience comprising the likes of Flashjack the hellion, Puckerscruff the urchin and Joey Picaroni the sour-faced sodding scofflaw. Hark to his fabbles of Yuletide shenanigans and Bold Nick Scantilaw, the Rakiest Rake as ever there was; or of Yapper, the Scruffian who learned to speak Dog, of Whelp, the dog Fixed as a Scruffian; and of the wicked Waiftaker General on his hunt for that four-legged fiend.

A companion to the La Case ebook edition of "The Taking of the Stamp," this ebook collects the remaining two stories of the Fabbles: 1 chapbook, "A Scruffian Christmas" and "The Beast of Buskerville."
