special editorial in the Amber Tribune
The only reason not to dismiss as pathetic Isaac Helgram’s relentless efforts to promote his toy kingdom of Lambeth is that Prince Doctor Helgram is so frankly honest about it.
His most recent efforts involve copying the parks, concert halls, etcetera recently announced by his cousin Ian.
The over stretching Isaac doesn’t realize, or doesn’t care, that his family connections would guarantee the Shadow’s prosperity without even pretense of effort on his part. He could have left Lambeth a sleepy fishing village. But no, Isaac had to make it a peer to Cannes, Nice or Monte Carlo.
What Isaac doesn’t realize is that his tight control isn’t making Lambeth the Switzerland of Creation, some idealized haven of safety and neutrality. He’s making it the Singapore of Creation – lovely place to visit, but Unicorn help you if you chew bubble gum.
