The  16  tales  in  this  book  range  in  length  from  115  pages  for  "Whizzers"  down  to  a  single  page  for  "Commuter,"  and  are  arranged  in  order  of  length  from  the  longest  down  to  the  shortest.    Each  tale  is  distinctly  different  from  its  15  neighbors  and  none  is  longer  than  it  needs  to  be  to  carry  the  plot.

Some  of  the  characters  are  those  almost  mythical  'real  Vermonters'  and  some  are  folks  who  were  born  elsewhere  but  had  the  good  fortune  to  relocate  in  Vermont.  One  is  a  wild  turkey,  one  is  a  colonial  ghost,  one  is  from  the  very  distant  past,  and  one  is  from  the  future.   The  rest  are  folks  you  might  meet  at  a  town  meeting  or  a  restaurant.      Two  of  the  stories  in  this  book  were  previously  published;  "A  Long  Winter's  Nap"  appeared  in  the  February,  1999  issue  of  Alfred  Hitchcock's  Mystery  Magazine,  and  "The  Infernal  Machine"  appeared  in  issue  Number  2,  Winter  93/94,  of  OffWorld,  a  nice  little  magazine  that  didn't  survive.
