- This article is on the novel Going Postal. For the violent social phenomenon, see Going postal.
Moist von Lipwig, aka Alfred Spangler, was a con artist and a fraud. About to be executed, he was faced with a life choice: be hanged, or put Ankh-Morpork's ailing postal service back on its feet. It was a tough decision. But now he's got to see that the mail gets though, come rain, hail, sleet, dogs, the Post Office Workers Friendly and Benevolent Society, the evil chairman of the Grand Trunk Semaphore Company, and his own nature. Getting a date with Adora Bell Dearheart (who smokes like a wooden ashtray) would be nice, too. Maybe it'll take a criminal to succeed where honest men have failed, or maybe it's a death sentence either way. Or perhaps there's a shot at redemption in the mad world of the mail, waiting for a man who's prepared to push the envelope...
