And Whether Pigs Have Wings

Alien beings--Uriel, Gabriel, and the nameless protagonist--strive to save the Earth by introducing wonder to people. The nameless one, with the aid of a bracelet with transformative power, becomes a mermaid, a rabbit, a UFO, and a ghost, by turns. Like the previous story ("The Hole Thing"), moralizing, handwringing about the future. Not unwarranted, but hardly enough for a story, by itself.
