In this volume we stand shoulder to shoulder with Maljie as she explores the intricacies of philosophy, marvel at her mastery of pre-paid indemnification plans, and assist her in the design of foundation garments. When you read this, not only will you discover just who wears the trousers, but you can indulge in a spot of fishing and enjoy the quaint fertility rites of our great city. This book contains fashion, honey, orphans, and the importance of dipping your money in vinegar to ensure it is safe. Indeed you may even learn how to teach a cat to dance…
Teaching cats to dance sounds like something our politicians do all the time, a bit like ‘gilding the lily’ or something equally preposterous. The fact that this is something to with Maljie does not surprise me at all.
Port Nain is not only a quiet place to live, it has some weird customs too. Most of which will usually end up involving one of my favourite Port Nain characters, Maljie.
If there’s a better, more profitable way to do almost anything, you can bet she will find it. As for teaching cats to dance, I imagine she could do that too, should the notion occur to her and the price is right.
Jim Webster’s stories are always well written and so good to read. I love reading about Maljie and all the residents of Port Nain…
About the Author
Someone once wrote this about me
“Jim Webster is probably still fifty something, his tastes in music are eclectic, and his dress sense is rarely discussed in polite society. In spite of this he has a wife and three daughters.
He has managed to make a living from a mixture of agriculture, consultancy, and freelance writing. Previously he has restricted himself to writing about agricultural and rural issues but including enough Ancient Military history to maintain his own sanity. But seemingly he has felt it necessary to branch out into writing fantasy and Sci-Fi novels.”
Now with eight much acclaimed fantasy works and two Sci-Fi to my credit it seems I might be getting into the swing of things.
And long may you continue, Jim!
