Another selection from Thomsen's The American Fantasy Tradition. Here we have a silly folklorish fable full of one-liners. An American Indian casts a spell on his homestead that discourages tax collectors and other interlopers from coming to bother him. I don't really find this sort of thing amusing, though some do. If I gave out stars, this would be right in the middle, 3 of 5, inoffensively average.
I've only read one other Lafferty story (that I can remember), "The World as Will and Wallpaper." That story was much more challenging and interesting.
