“There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal.” C.S. Lewis
This is a fascinating tale of adventure. A young man finds himself suddenly traveling between alternate worlds in search of parts of a map that was tattooed onto a man's skin. This map explains how to travel throughout the various worlds via ley lines. Bad guys want the map. Good guys try to protect the map. There is humor, suspense, action. It kept me interested throughout and I wanted the adventure to never end. A really good read.

Perhaps it is because yarn mates and produces more yarn.
Perhaps it is because yarn is clingy and follows one around to every room.
Perhaps it is just that it is easier to grab a quick fix of knitting when there are bits of knitting close to hand.
In any case, yarn will not stay in one place. I have been trying to cage it up for years and still find uncaged, wild yarn roaming the great vastness of my tiny house.
Do Borrowers steal yarn and move it about for the fun of befuddling me?
