The Office of Dead Letters

There is no such thing as a dead letter. Until there is...

Former enlistee Marilyn Moon was hoping for a quiet retirement after the end of The Last War. But when her colleague unexpectedly delivers a dead letter, Marilyn must go find her. Teaming up with the intrepid secretary Isabel and the disaster-prone Dr Simon, the trio will navigate a changed geography, killer kitchens, eerie neighbours, and the messy maths of space-time. As Marilyn learns more of Overworld’s secrets, she begins to wonder – is this really the world that she fought for?

A fast-paced sci-fi novella, this retrofuturism tale will have fans of Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams clamouring to learn more about the secrets of the Two Worlds.
