Thanks to a recent posting by Accordion Guy, I had the great fortune to read what has quickly become one of my favorite short stories.
The Door in the Wall is a very engaging read. Written in 1911 by H.G. Wells, the style reflects and is evocative of a more genteel time, though it is in no way stuffy. The story provides ample opportunity for self reflection; many of the excuses made by the protagonist will resonate with those of us living modern, busy lives. Take the first step towards the door, and read this story!
