Hortense in Exile
Set to marry Gormanskoï, the Premier Prince Presumptive, our beautiful heroine Hortense has been exiled to Queneau'stown, where she finds herself in a real-life production of Hamlet -- or is it Hatmel, the original Poldevian tale scandalously plagiarized by that Englishman William Shahkayspear? Something is definitely amiss in the Poldevian Principalities, and if her loyal friends can't rescue her or foil the plagiarized plots of her evil twin, she may require intervention from the Author and Publisher -- those unlikely cohorts responsible for bringing this deftly satiric, madcap adventure to light.
