Summary :

Hugo nominee for Best Novel - 1979; Nebula nominee for Best Novel - 1978.

The author's posthumously published first book and only novel.

One summer day in the 1920s, Haverstock's Traveling Curiosus and Wondershow rides into a small Mid-western town. Haverstock's show is a presentation of mysterious wonders: feats of magic, strange creatures, and frightening powers. Three teenage girls attend the opening performance that evening which, for each, promises love and threatens death. The three girls are drawn to the show and its performers - a lusty centaur, Angel the magical albino boy, the rowdy stage hands - but frightened by the enigmatic owner, Haverstock. The girls at first try to dismiss these marvels as trickery, but it becomes all too real, too vivid to be other than nightmare reality. Each feels the force of the show and its power to alter everyday lives: Francine is drawn embarrassingly to the centaur, Rose makes an assignation with one of the hands and gets in trouble, and Evelyn is fascinated by the pathetic, mysterious Angel, The Boy Who Can Fly, and together they plan escape.
