The Celestial Omnibus

by E.M. Forster

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 fiancée 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.

Contents: The Story of a Panic -- The Other Side of the Hedge -- The Celestial Omnibus -- Other Kingdom -- The Curate's Friend -- The Road from Colonus
