Date: 1953-08-00
Type: SHORTFICTION

Note: Note that the story has been revised for The Best of Poul Anderson probably by Anderson himself. The salesman in the opening paragraphs no longer has a "punched card" which is checked for "holes," but simply a "card" that's checked for "magnetic encodings." He's no longer bound for "New Pittsburgh," but for "Cincinnati." Superfluous words have been removed from many sentences, etc.
