"A wonderful exploration of human and social behavior. By brilliantly setting her stories in an imaginary place inhabited by unusual people, Vera Nova provides readers with an endless stream of provocative insights about the potential and limitations of the human psyche. A remarkable and revealing piece of work." RONALD COMER Princeton University. From the passionate book-lover: Take a vacation and leave the mad world for the delightfully funny wonder-world, "The Noble Society Of Bullford"! Enjoy and learn from its super-playful, fascinating wisdom. This is an absolute Classic." Glenn O. "So you see, the more money we have, the more nothing we have - except promises. We give money to someone when we cannot immediately offer them something real and valuable. It admits the unfortunate situation that we do not have things or work to offer them at the moment," explained Mr. Thoughtmill. "So since we are indeed running out of money, we must be doing very well," concluded Lady Fluffystone. Our first reaction to exchanges like this one in the mythical society of Bullford might be to decide that its citizens are eccentric. But it is part of the magic of the place that as we consider their reasoning further, we may decide the Bullfordians are perfectly sane and we are the eccentric ones. Escape the "real" world and rejuvenate yourself with a vacation to Bullford and its sweet, ethical, fun and funny inhabitants. Mr. NoWhitenose (the goat), Lady Pepperpie, Mr. Little Balloon, and the Overcrossworld Messenger wait within to soothe, amuse, and perhaps enlighten. Those four tales achieve a rare balance. They portray a truly kinder, gentler place in a way that is not cloying but rather has an intellectual edge. Most importantly, these "unorthodox fairy tales from another dimension" have a quality characteristic of the best literature: they shimmer. You will get something different from them upon each new reading. You are cordially invited to visit
