"Killing Time", a short story by Dave Gross, was released as Pathfinder Tales web fiction in November 2012 and as a compiled ebook in October 2013. This book serves as a prequel to Gross's 2012 Pathfinder Tales novel, Queen of Thorns.

Returning to Absalom from faraway Tian Xia has done nothing to separate Venture-Captain Varian Jeggare and his infernal companion Radovan from trouble. While Varian deals with the inscrutable Decemvirate and an old enemy, Randovan plunges himself into Absalom's seediest alleyways and soon finds himself doing the bidding of a beautiful but scheming courtesan. Will Varian and Randovan overcome some of the worst Absalom has to offer, or have they survived their adventure in Tian Xia only to seal their fates on their first night in Absalom?
