A near fine copy in near fine jacket without previous owner's marks. Introduction by Mike Resnick. Collection of eight stories (one original to this collection), featuring Maureen "Muffy" Birnbaum, transported out of the shopping mall into various barbarian worlds, including Barsoom, Pellucidar and the Horseclans among others.

The start of each story features a full-page black & white illustration spoofing the iconic Frank Franzetta illustrations. Award History: 1994 Locus Poll Award Nominee for Best Collection (lost to Impossible Things by Connie Willis).
