Overview

Jonathan Bing wasn’t the first citizen of Twonbly Town to have a run-in with Selznak the Dwarf.

Meet the young Theophile Escargot, aggrieved former citizen of Twombly Town. Divorced, exiled, and humiliated (all for the crime of eating his own pie), he sets off down the Oriel in search of a fetching barmaid, only to find himself traveling by submarine into fabled Balumnia, where is he is beset on all sides by an evil dwarf, a piratical elf, a stone giant, and an unlucky bag of marbles.

With a little help, Escargot must rescue his true love, save the elves, and--most importantly--redeem his dignity.

Revisit the world of The Elfin Ship and The Disappearing Dwarf, and discover where the adventures began.

"A magical world, magically presented... having journeyed there, you will not wish to leave, nor ever to forget." -- Philip K. Dick
