The fourth short story in the Ustari Cycle. Lately Lem's days have taken a strange turn, always the same and yet minutely different. Lem’s constantly feeling like he’s forgetting something, like something is calling to him from the beyond, but perhaps most bizarre of all, his best friend Mags is nowhere to be found—and the police seem to want to help Lem locate him. The po-po being helpful to a Trickster like him? Now he knows something is up.
