A newlywed woman starts giving birth to very remarkable children, some of which have four legs, some of which have clock faces, all of which can be classified as furniture. But all she ever wanted was a child who looks like her.
From Remember Why You Fear Me, this story is one of a set of deliciously frightening and darkly satirical tales by Robert Shearman, winner of the World Fantasy Award, the British Fantasy Award, the Shirley Jackson Award, and the Edge Hill Reader's Prize.
