A traveler steps off the road and finds himself in an alternate reality. A sullen boy accidentally summons a spirit. A man
gets more than he bargained for when he buys his fiancee a plot of wooded land.These six stories deal with transformations,
the truth of the imagination, and the effect of the unseen on ordinary lives. By juxtaposing the Edwardian English with pagan
mythology, E.M. Forster created in this collection a work of lasting strangeness and great beauty.
