A Novella by

No matter how hard you try, no matter how far you look, you will never find this shop.

It will find you.

Dreams, desires, the most outlandish wishes: all are for sale at Esther May Morrow's timeless antiques and sundries store, for the bargain price of...well, that would be telling. You'll have to see for yourself. So come on in. Don't be shy. Make her an offer. She never refuses anyone.

There's just one thing I should mention: each purchase comes with an absolute guarantee--no one who leaves her shop will be ever the same again.


What if the last thing you imagined before you fell asleep sleep was waiting for you when you woke up? Just one condition: it has to be small enough to fit inside a glass fruit bowl.
For down-on-his-luck salesman Nick Bergman, a heartfelt gift bought with his final ten pounds opens an astonishing magical route to fortune. His girlfriend Geri advises caution, but Nick fears the phenomenon might only be temporary. It's time to get creative. Physical riches soon give way to truly ambitious plans for the future when he realizes the awesome implications of limitless wealth. The world beckons.

But how far can he go? How far would you go?
