Adapted by Julie Hoverson from the story
by Fritz Leiber

The Puffy Loaf corporation takes the next "logical" step to make their bread fluffier and lighter
...possibly lighter than air.

[This is adapted from a Fritz Leiber story published in 1958, which has passed into the public domain.  Many tanks to Librivox and Project Gutenberg for digging out these otherwise lost classics.]

Music by Kevin MacLeod (, except for "Softly and Gently..." (words & music by Will Thompson, 1880. Public Domain. Public Domain MIDI file, altered by Bill McGinnis.)

Editing and Sound:  Julie Hoverson
