More > vessels, but the upper half was always best and used for long salt-water journeys, the lower piece being but for punting or fishing on their lakes. They cut them in half while still green, scraped out the light remaining pulp when dry, and dragged them down with the minimum of trouble, light as feathers, tenacious as steel plate, and already in the form and fashion of dainty craft from five to twenty feet in length, when the process was completed.

When an avaricious pensioner pulls an old plough from the River Thames, to sell as scrap to supplement her pension, she has no idea that she has lit the fuse for a theological time bomb. With the... More > power to turn crops to gold, the Bachelor's plough threatens to bring chaos to the existing power hierarchy in Heaven and on Earth - a bit like when a combine harvester rolls down a hill after the driver has neglected to apply the handbrake.

In the most nail-biting race since Jessica Fletcher and Beryl Reid ran against each other in the egg-and-spoon event at the Porn Industry's Annual Charity Sports Day in 1986, only one god can win... The other must be satisfied with second place.< Less

Lemuel Bentwhistle is awakened by a noise in the middle of the night and can only imagine some college kids have made a crop circle in his cornfield. Instead, he finds someone has parked a spaceport... More > on his north forty. He meets the people from the twenty-third century to try an figure out what has happened.
