Baron Münchhausen has been known to stretch the truth a bit, then tie it in knots, toss it on the floor, and stomp on it. But to prove him wrong, is it really necessary for Count Federmann to construct a gigantic clockwork spring and launch himself to the Moon? If the Count should do so, and if he should drag his trustworthy servant along, perhaps he’ll learn enough to tell . . . a tale more true.
History’s greatest liar, a colossal clockwork spring, a fantastic trip to the Moon . . . in 1769. Read it, but don’t expect truth. A Tale More True, a short story by Steven R. Southard.
