"Love and World Eaters" first appeared with Books To Go Now in August 2011 under the pen name Tom C. Underhill.
Aliah knows some of the artifacts stored in the bowels of the Chicago Field Museum are coated with arsenic, but as long as she keeps her gloves on, she doesn’t think any of the items are actually dangerous... until a sliver of bone knifes through her skin and swims off in her bloodstream.
Shortly thereafter, Aliah starts to experience the past of every artifact she touches. This unasked for ability quickly entangles her in one of the greatest Who Dunnits? of all time: the murder of Philip II, Alexander the Great’s father.
