Description, by Lois Tilton [Locus]: "The story is titled for its setting... Maggie is an aging witch who lives in an isolated place because she wants some rest.

She can’t bring herself to turn him down, so she sits on her rocker on the porch and waits to stand them off, both God and Devil, who each seem to want the possum mainly because the other does. The first gives up easily, the other not so much, although he and Maggie are closer acquaintances...... "
