“When I was done with the man, there was barely anything left. Some bone, some blood, but that was all. I cleaned what I could, collected the man’s bones and considered. I put the bones in the oven and turned the heat on high. I rendered the last of the man’s fat down to spoonable butter, then left his bones to turn to charcoal. The roasting took nearly a day before the bones were burned enough to be crushed to powder.”
