Explore new worlds. Frustrated with a government that pays him to bury surplus produce in order to "fix" the economy while city folk starve, farmer Eben Smith decides to take matters into his own hands. He piles up his wagon with ripe fruits and vegetables and sets out for the first time to barter his goods in the big city.
Being Eben's first city trip and all, the way soon becomes uncertain. But when Eben comes across a strange crossroads, he discovers that he's fallen into a nexus in time. Soon he's bartering a lot more than goods with different cultures in alternative realities . . . accidentally wreaking havoc and chaos in each. ALSO INCLUDES THE FANTASY STORIES "BORROWED GLORY" AND "THE DEVIL'S RESCUE"
"The full-cast performance and sound effects make the stories that much more compelling. The sound effects are engaging but never distracting, and the musical score hints at adventure themes and old-time mystery radio shows." -Publishers Weekly
