The Half-Made World by Felix Gilman
Liv Alverhyusen, a psychologist working in a mental institution, finds herself the unwitting target of an ongoing war between two rival factions–the Gun and the Line. In her care is the one man who may hold the secret to stopping the world that’s being made through the grotesque paths of the Gun and the Line.
