The troupers of the Big Time lack no art to sway a crowd--or to change all history! (A Change War story.)

Miss Nefer can't be a day over forty--well, forty-two at most--but now she looked and talked and felt to my hands dressing her, well, at least a dozen years older. I guess when Miss Nefer gets into character she does it with each molecule.
