Publisher's Summary

When Pyecroft, an obese man who cannot stop eating, becomes a member at the club H.G. belongs to, his corpulence becomes a disturbance and a distraction. Soon, Pyecroft gets wind of the fact that H.G. has some mystical weight loss remedies given to him by his grandmother, and he begs H.G. to let him have one. Finally, H.G. lets him have the information, and Pyecroft disappears from the club. Not long after his disappearance, H.G. receives a note of emergency to come alone to his home. He finds Pyecroft floating on the ceiling. The recipe was for weightlessness not losing fat, but H.G. saves the day by coming up with the solution of attaching weights around Pyecroft's body so that he can once again enter society.
