Something is rotten in the Ministry of Mammals.
S. Fox, a recent recruit, finds that his new life in the office block is every bit as dangerous as in his native forest. In a set of letters written to his cousin, Arctic Fox, we follow his trials, as he tries to navigate a way through the forests of bureaucracy. Before his eyes, factions tear the office world apart. S. Fox must keep his head off the paper guillotine, when waves of oppression, revolution and counter-revolution engulf the ministry.
His world is complicated further by messengers from another. The un-dead headless chicken, a transdimensional cat and a phantom Afghan hound, stalk the sleepless fox. All call on him to avenge them, and to grab power for himself.
This satire of everything from political history to corporate management is witty and entertaining, making Letters from the Ministry the Animal Farm for the 21st century.

About the Author
After completing a psychology degree, the author realised that he was profoundly misanthropic and set about travelling the world looking for aliens to take him to another planet. Unable to speak any foreign languages and almost incapable of holding a conversation in his own, he decided to teach English as a foreign language because this was the only job that would allow him to travel widely without any marketable skills or noticeable intelligence. He has unsuccessfully searched for life from outer space in classrooms in the following countries: Spain, China, Russia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Beirut, Dubai, Sri Lanka, Lebanon France, Vietnam and Korea. In the future, he hopes to continue his search for alien life forms in different countries, and he would be most obliged if any aliens reading this work could spirit him off to an altogether more exotic planet in a more harmonious dimension. About two dozen of his pieces have appeared online -- mainly travel writing and short stories, and one of them, The Interactive Classroom, won a Bewildering Stories’ Mariner Award in 2010. His latest novel, Kev the Vampire, was published by Rebel ePublishers. He can be contacted at email@example.com
