H.G. Wells. Yeah, when he invents a genre, he invents a genre. Think of all the stories with magic shops like the one in today’s story – Harry Potter, The Twilight Zone, Gremlins, Little Shop of Horrors, the list goes on and on. 

This story is a little lighter than Wells’ typical fare, and is perfect for Halloween listening. So, let’s journey to a magic shop where “All goods (are) of the same quality…and that is the best”

And now, The Magic Shop, by H.G. Wells.
