Something True 2.8: Odyssée
Guillaume le Gentil didn’t find purpose in the church, seeking it instead in the stars.

Something True 2.6: L'Arme X
Nobody in France had seen anything like it. The boy, Tarrare, could eat whatever he wanted, in enormous quantities, and never felt full or put on weight. Tarrare was just hungry. He was hungry all the time. And as he wandered Paris, eating anything he pleased, he would, in turn, be swallowed up by forces great and sinister.
