Rusty Fears Competition Winner - The Turning of the Gears

In preparation for the much anticipated arrival of season 5, we continue the tone that was set by last week's competition winner with the second of two winning stories from our Rusty Fears 3: Fearsome competition.

"The Turning of the Gears" is written by Duncan Watson and read by Jonathan Sims.

Note: this is a piece of stand-alone fiction and not a part of the Magnus canon.
