grew up a rather bitter woman who gave a speech covering what happened to various Wonderland characters after they entered our reality Amusing storyTeapot by Jane M Lindskold A story from the viewpoint of the Dormouse who ends up entering a different reality All right story but not greatWho Killed Humpty Dumpty by Mickey Zucker Reichert Alice is put on trial for the alleged murder of

Alice a couple of very strange characters a car chase and similar silliness Fairly decent story but not greatWaiting for the Elevator by Kevin T Stein Alice and the Harleuin are waiting for an elevator One of the worst stories in the book it should have been left out actuallyConundrums to Guess by Peter CrowtherBasically a horror story it s interesting but not outstandingA Pig s Tale by
