Story Summary

Mr. Vandermeer employs immigrant labor but far more go into his house than ever come out. Determined to discover Mr. Vandermeer's secret, young Lien from next door tricks his way into the attic only to find an entire city complete with crop fields, factories and slum neighborhoods. Impossible? ... not with the hellish space-maker churning away.
