"It costs nothing and everything. You must invest no coin, but you will hand over much of what you are."
—Korvas in THE GOD BOX
In the in the exotic city of Iskandar, a somewhat dishonest carpet merchant in the bazaar named Korvas, on the run from the King's Guard for selling phony flying carpets, inherits a strange little box in the shape of a cask with four drawers. The magic in this box is that it will always give Korvas anything he needs, which is not necessarily what he wants, although at times the box will give him what he wants just to show him he didn't need it —which is what he needed at the time. A strange, humorous and lusty, and at times profound spiritual journey.
Author's Note: "With the Kindle edition, for the very first time there appears on a cover what the actual God Box in the story looks like, although in this version the ghostly image of Tah, bodyguard to Lem Vyle, blocks the view of the ivory handle. In the image, three of the God Box's drawers have been removed showing scenes from the reader's future, should he or she read THE GOD BOX."
It should be noted that strictly speaking, this is not a fantasy book because God Boxes really exist and work as advertised. To confirm this, read Meditation 71. "A Really Stupid Suggestion" in Barry Longyear's YESTERDAY'S TOMORROW, Recovery Meditations For Hard Cases.
