Jabez Monchek has lived alone in his sprawling house since he was a small boy, unable to leave because the doors to the outside have disappeared from his view and the windows are barred. He only sees Murry a young boy who delivers his groceries. He envies Murry's ability to "walk through walls". His guest Carla encourages him to go outside, but he insists there are no doors he can walk through. After Carla leaves in apparent frustration, many doors to the outside start to appear but Jabez cannot make up his mind which one to walk through.

Indexer Notes

Jabez is about to read HP Lovecraft (whom he strongly resembles) just before Carla arrives. On Jabez' desk are a book by Abdul Alhazrd (sic) "Necro(nomicon?)", Colin Wilson's "The Mind Parasites", and what appears to be Jabez' own autobiography "No Way Out"!
