Quiet Post (Large Print Edition)
A Tale of the Quasiverse
From Stephen Goldin, a Nebula Award finalist and the author of POLLY! and TREK TO MADWORLD comes a truly bizarre comedy of outlandish proportions.
The Quasiverse: A land that's a combination of Oz, Wonderland, Discworld, and general surreality, where anything can happen and often does; a land of snow globe mines and french fries plantations; a land where bossy birds can have teeth and locks can be very particular about how you stick a key in them; a land where you never know what color the sky will be when you wake up in the morning and where murder victims can be only randomly dead.
Martia Rosenthal is escaping from a bad love affair, and enlists for a diplomatic assignment in the Quasiverse. With the combination of her wealth and the position of sub-legate, she's assured it will be a quiet post. But she reckons without the vagaries of this bizarre world, where the unusual nature of her friends, as well as her enemies, threatens to end her sanity, if not her very life.
QUIET POST is an absurdist comedy with surprises around every turn and smiles never far from your lips.
