Robbins, Tod: The Toys of Fate. v1. 20 Sep 2033

“Much as I feared Old Man Fate, he exerted a peculiar fascination over me. Like many another fool, I longed to look into the eyes of the future.”

The owner of a toy store creates a miniature model of his village, and eventually sells it to a stranger. But the model seems to be more than just a replica of the actual village, and the stranger is apparently not simply an old man.

================
Clarence Aaron Robbins (25 June 1888 – May 10, 1949), billed as C. A. Robbins and better known as Tod Robbins, was an American author of horror and mystery fiction, particularly novels and short story collections. Writing for mainstream pulp magazines, he specialized in horror fiction dealing with themes of madness and cruelty. His work often contains bizarre and frightening plots, sometimes influenced by writers like Oscar Wilde and Robert W. Chambers. His novel The Unholy Three (1917), about side-show performers on a crime spree, was twice adapted for the screen, starring Lon Chaney both times. His short story “Spurs” was the basis for the 1932 cult film Freaks.

“…good pulp fiction, with a note of whimsy and sophistication that is unusual in the form.” —E. F. Bleiler
