Prince Robot IV holding up Alana's confiscated copy of A Night Time Smoke.

A Night Time Smoke is a romance novel written by D. Oswald Heist, widely panned by readers. (McHenry, for example, described it as "the kind [of stupid romance] housewives buy at the supermarket.") Alana's favorite book.

Plot[]

The novel concerns two characters, Eames, a rock monster, and Contessa, the daughter of a rich quarry owner. After they meet, they hang out and lead a quiet, unassuming life together in their apartment, playing board games and sometimes going to see movies (at which they eat sandwiches).

Controversy[]

While most readers of the novel (or most fans of Heist's other work) consider this book to be complete trash, there are some who see it as a thinly-veiled tract in favor of radical pacifism and inaction--a message that runs entirely counter to the ongoing war between Landfall and Wreath forces.
