The Celestial Omnibus and Other Stories

The Celestial Omnibus and Other Stories

in EPUB format, also available for Kindle or in PDF

This work was published before 1923 and is in the public domain in the USA only.

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.
