"The crossroads. Farmer Eben Morse sets out to sell his crops in the big city, but encounters a strange crossroads in time. He follows each of the roads to its destination, each a different culture, and having scattered havoc in all of them, wearily sets off for home. The devil's rescue. When the crew of a spectral old clipper ship rescues Lanson from his drifting lifeboat, he discovers that they are faceless, except for the captain. When a special guest, the Dark One, appears, as he does every seven years, the captain, seeking release from endless wandering, plays a game of dice with the visitor and loses, once again. Lanson then plays and wins and is instantly plunged back into the sea, but finds his lifeboat. The room. The country doctor's room is his private den, a den filled with strange souvenirs with even stranger properties. The bottle of excellent liquor, for instance. It pours but it never empties. And one day the doctor's son opens the door to find a land with camels and a green sea." —Publisher // Time travel -- Fiction. Time travel. Fantasy fiction, American.
