Publisher's Summary

Does size matter? Is bigger better? That's no small question to Tom Little - the circus midget with giant dreams.
Tom may be king of the midgets, but he's got far grander ambitions - to become the muscleman at the top, the ringmaster. Now, drawing on some dark ancient secrets and mystic texts, he's about to get his wish. Imagine a pint-sized Mickey Rooney on steroids, trading up into a body like Burt Lancaster's. Then imagine paying the biggest price of all…
Assuming another man's identity, Tom discovers he must also take on his sins, debts, and enemies. He may be living large - but now there are those who want to make him pay for the big man's sins.
Throughout his young life Hubbard was intrigued by mysticism and magic. From an old Blackfoot Indian medicine man in Montana to the last living magician descendant of Kublai Khan in China, from the Chamorro natives of Guam to voodoo displays in Haiti, he absorbed information and insight wherever he could - putting it all to marvelous use in stories like this.
Also includes "The Last Drop", an astounding tale of a New York bartender who mixes some very magical drinks - to amazing effect.


What the Critics Say

"The fascinating thing to me is that L. Ron Hubbard's fantasy stories, first published 50 and 60 years ago, are not dated in style, content or language. They are as fresh and interesting for times right now as they were when he conceived them." (Anne McCaffrey)
"A master of the fast-action short story." (Robert A. Heinlein)

A very fun listen

This audiobook really conveys the feel and atmosphere of an old time small circus. You get an inside look at circus life. The book is not actually narrated by Nancy Cartwright. She plays the voice of two of the characters as far as I can tell. The cast is Nancy Cartwright, Lynsey Bartilson, Corey Burton, Bob Caso, R.F. Daley, Jennifer Darling, John Mariano, Jim Meskimen, Phil Proctor and Tait Ruppert.

You get quite a bit more than you expect from this story. It has a great message and is very fun to listen to.
