One day an engineer prince dropped a golden multiscan down a blowhole on the frozen surface of his home asteroid. A passing "frag" (an artificial cloned lifeform designed to be imprinted with the genetic blueprint of highly trained soldiers) offered to retrieve it, and in return asked to spend just one night in the prince's bed.The classic Grimm fairy tale receives a funny and macabre update in this short story prelude to Andrew K Lawston's upcoming novel "Voyage of the Space Bastard".First published in Grimm & Grimmer: Volume Four (2016).
