Do you occasionally feel like your reality is being manipulated by a cranky fascist toddler in the middle of a tantrum? You’re not alone! But you’ve got nothing on the residents of Peaksville. Isolated from the rest of the United States – nobody’s quite sure how – the characters in Jerome Bixby’s 1953 sci-fi story are literally at the mercy of Anthony Fremont, an omnipotent three-year old “with a cute little-boy face and blue, guileless eyes.” Hear Walker Mettling read Bixby’s story aloud and then watch multiple filmed adaptations of the story – one so frightful that The Twilight Zone adapted it three different times.
