The Claw of the Conciliator Chapter 29 "The Herdsman"

Severian and Dorcas and Jolenta have an eventful morning and afternoon --almost too eventful to be believed -- filled with roast beef, bull riding, and encounters with the animal kingdom.

For Patrons, check out the special super-duper version with secret high-quality bonus content starting at 1:54:00 where we talk about Wolfe's uncollected story "The Vampire's Kiss"

Listen to a reading of that story here: Starship Sofa episode 60
