Boskeopolis Stories by J. J. W. Mezun

Rhymin' & Stealin'

Boskeopolis is an obscure city-state in the Verdazul archipelago in Orange Ocean–or, as other countries call it, the Pacific Ocean. It’s notable for its persistent violation o’ the laws o’ physics, biology, & economics—though, to be fair, real life doesn’t obey that last 1, either. As such, any inconsistencies within these stories should be blamed on glitches, for I’m ’fraid . . .

HOW TO AVOID DEATH ON A DAILY BASIS

The Cynic’s Progress

By Fiona Gregory, editor

Dec 14, 2016: Sometimes, you just feel like reading something light and fun. This fits the bill.

We have a grouchy, cynical unreliable narrator, who is a great source of sardonic humour. He’s not as useless as he thinks he is, as in his quest to survive he finds himself becoming the reluctant leader of a group of misfits, who ironically bring out the best in each other.

Sep 21, 2014: Only a few chapters exist at the time of this review, but what’s there so far is promising. The story is told in first person perspective by a young magic user who specializes in (hopefully you guessed it) firestarting! Also who seems to have a knack for getting into situations that end up more than a bit out of control (both the current story and some fragmented anecdotes that are referenced), usually as a result of said young magic user’s willingness to ignore the law in search of employment.
