    When James hid in the Nothing Shop he didn't expect to find anyone there. And he didn't expect to find himself buying a box of nothing, a bit of the original nothing which was there before the universe began. But from that adventure flowed James's whole adventure on the Dump, his meeting with the odd but friendly creature that called itself the Burra, with the terrible rat-general and with the alarming gull people, until the final race across the desert to the beginning (or the end) of everything.
