Oh, with a chapter title like this, things aren't going to go very well.

Man, poor Mr. Marvel. Gotta feel sorry for him. But at least the chapter was... briefer, and less painful on his part, than I expected.

Ostria? I assume that's Austria, though I wonder why just that one country, out of all the ones in Europe.

An Alteration in the Inn... heh.

It's a bit weird to read about America being some such exotic place to these people! I mean, it's understandable, but weird. Not only being from there, but being from a time where everywhere seems so much more connected, thanks to modern media and the internet.

I like the image of butterfly money... heh. Get me a net!

And... Poor Mr. Marvel. Again. At least he's trying to get away! With, it must be admitted, a lot of stolen money. The Invisible Man must not be in very good shape if he can't catch up!

A few really short chapters this time... oh well, that's the way the ball bounces, I guess.


And for Friday, Chapters 16-18.

Yep, that's Austria..which, at the time, often meant the whole Dual Monarchy, which means it included exotic places like Transylvania.

For a lot of rural British people, America is still an exotic place where anything can happen..which is even more curious since a lot of Brits vacation in Florida.

But Florida has Disney, and Carl Hiassen -- I'd say they're right, anything can happen!

Invisible Man clearly needs those fancy shoes for running barefoot! Mr. Marvel has the advantage there. Plus, the advantage of being able to eat in public, etc.

(I'm glad Wells touched on eating in an earlier section. I'd always wondered! Cheeseburger shows up faintly until consumed & integrated into the body, okay then.)
