From the S.E.P. comes Alexander Botts, Sales Manager of the Earthworm Tractor Company, a man of wild inspiration and vigorous action. In a series of grand strategies, disasters, and eventual achievements, most of them on the underside of legal and business mores, Botts engineers a series of startling coups. Whether in his manoeuvers against the rival Behemoth company, (in coping with sabotage, salvage, an aquatic house moving expedition, etc.) or in his later-pages Army career, where his unruly behaviour demotes him out of the Cavalry into Ordnance and the Alaska Highway, Botts reveals an amazing, unorthodox ingenuity and a flair for fantastic fiascos. Hearty humor, to the gents' taste.
