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 a character driven work, this is essentially the story summed up – following a damaged individual who tries to make sense of the world by codifying its smells.
