Roman fantasy in cheie parodica. J.W.Wells pare o companie respectabila, dar e de fapt o organizatie sinistra condusa de o echipa manageriala extrem de bizara.

A startling mixture of comedy and tragedy, THE WALLED ORCHARD is the poignant, charming story of their turbulent relationship. With unforgettable characters and a powerful and moving story, THE WALLED ORCHARD is a wonderful evocation of life in Ancient Greece in the fifth century BC...
Another slice of fantastic comic TOMfoolery.

Once upon a time (or last Thursday, as it's known in this matrix) everything was fine: Humpty Dumpty sat on his wall, Jack and Jill went about their lawful business, the Big Bad Wolf did what big bad wolves do, and the wicked queen plotted murder most foul.
But the humans hacked, cried havoc, shut down the wicked queen's system (mirrors 3.1..
