When Joel jabs his arm with a rusty piece of metal while prospecting for plastic at the town dump, their Ma is countin' on Ty to find Joel some decent medicine. They head to the city, where Ty must contend with overloaded medical bureaucracies, rapscallion fraudulent doctors, blood-stealing bouncers, and a shadowy medical underground in order to find Joel the object of his quest:
A tetanus shot.
Boy, does he ever need a fairy goddoctor.
“Seeking a Fairy Goddoctor” is a short tale about two brothers facing a shortage of medicine in a post-petroleum world.
