    It isn’t easy being Sunday’s child, not when you’re the rather overlooked and unhappy youngest sibling to sisters named for the other six days of the week. Sunday’s only comfort is writing stories, although what she writes has a terrible tendency to come true. When Sunday meets an enchanted frog who asks about her stories, the two become friends. Soon that friendship deepens into something magical. One night, Sunday kisses her frog goodbye and leaves, not realizing that her love has transformed him....

    Imagine a universe where, on November 5, 1605, Guy Fawkes's Gunpowder Plot was successful. The explosion resulted in a schism that split the British Prime Universe into two more planes of existence: one that went forwards in time (clockwise), and one that went backwards (counterclockwise, or widdershins). On All Hallows Eve every year, the bonds between these multiverses are strong enough to pull a body from one plane of existence to the other.
