Chapter 39: H.G. Wells (Paul F. Tompkins) proves a good woman is easy to snatch up in a machine that can travel through time and space! And Flannery O'Connor (Lennon Parham) proves that all of us can be a peacock. All of us.

Chapter 38: H.G. Wells (Paul F. Tompkins) welcomes the creator of James Bond himself, Ian Fleming (Matt Gourley) to the Dead Authors stage. Mr. Fleming is a troubled soul who only wants to be a monstrous misogynist. Is that so much to ask? Apparently so.
