Book synopsis (The back of the book says)
H. W. Wells seems a respectable establishment, but the company now paying Paul Carpenter' s salary is in fact a deeply sinister organisation with a mighty peculiar agenda. Since he graduated from office junior to clerk, he has wrestled with goblins, travelled hundreds of miles in the blink of an eye and spent hours doing dangerous office admin. Now, just when he thought he might be getting the hang of it he is transferred to the pest control department. This is otherwise known as slaying dragons, werewolves and other such monstrous creatures which Paul had, until recently, fondly believed didn' t exist. This isn' t the best time to discover that his company is involved in a long and bitter war against the Fey. However, there is a bright side. Sophie might have dumped him then left for Hollywood, but junior school sweetheart Melze is a wonderful compensation . . .A wickedly funny new comic fantasy novel featuring the further adventures of Paul Carpenter, hero of The Portable Door.
This book has also been translated to Polish, with the name "Śniło ci się".
