More than twenty stories varying in style from tales not out of place in One Thousand and One Nights, to the completely bemusing. Discover mirrors that predict imminent events and museums where your personal future life is exhibited in the kind of ephemeral objects that might normally find their way into a dustbin. Meet tadpoles, lazy assassins, and assiduous poisoners, observe deals with the devil, and workplace stress taken to its logical conclusion. Heroes, villains, and animals - anything and anyone could provide the twist in the tale - cursed travellers, persistent dreamers, aliens, robots and even ice might be the source of danger or of love.
