“Of course, the real charm of the place is that hole in the space-time continuum.”

// caption accompanying a New Yorker cartoon by Tom Cheney

Here we present a short story, some three thousand five hundred and ninety words in length. Concerning? The experience of screwing on your spacesuit helmet, cinching that climbing rope around your waist, and dropping through the floor of the mundane into the stars below.

About this chapbook series:

These bite-sized booklets are a mouthful of literature each, intended to be read in a single sitting. When you’re done with one, pass it along! Look for them lying around in Boston, Portland, or New York City. When you see one waiting to be read, go ahead and pick it up. Give it a home in your hands for a ten-minute lit snack. Then when you’re finished, leave it behind for the next person to find, in an ATM lobby, on a train station bench, in the coffeeshop, at the pub.

To request a single copy of any chapbook in the series, or a set of copies in bulk quantity so you can pepper them around your neighborhood, just contact the Pen & Anvil Press and we can put a plan together to mail some over to you. You can reach us via the good folks at the Boston Poetry Union, PO Box 15274 Boston MA 02215. If you don’t have a stamp, feel free to send us an email.
