Authorised Happiness 1

When society pushes the ideals of equality to their breaking point, the result can easily become plain absurd. In order to avoid the chronic budget deficit of the healthcare system, for instance, what better way is there but to become a nanny state? Even if it leads to the Medical Police imposing fines on anyone not watching the weather forecast… Three Kafkaesque stories that paint a frightening picture of an over-regulated world.

Mayam 4 — The Infinite Goodness of Lenny June

Life is good again for Lenny June, legal attaché to the Terran delegation on the developing planet of Mayam. After all, he’s bested his scheming former boss the ambassador, ditched an intergalactic cartel’s deadly hit woman out in the forbidden wastelands, and gotten away with the priceless relic they were all after: the ancient head of a dead god. But then… who is trying to kill him? Why did the diplomatic core decide not to promote him, and instead, send out a new ambassador… with Lenny’s fiancée? And could it be that head isn’t actually as dead as he thought?
