The Convention of Sophonts brings together species from countless alternate earths. Worlds-spanning deals are brokered, inter-species wars are averted, and humans…do their best. At the United Nations Embassy, the only person who knows how to deal with non-humans is the cook, Koen.
When some of the Embassy staff, driven by their own agendas, attempt to teach a powerful nonhuman diplomat a lesson in empathy, Koen finds himself pulled into a potentially messy scandal. Now, it’s not just the job of a cook, but the mission of a decent human being to save the day, or at least dinner.
Fellow Tetrapod is a low-stakes sci-fi comedy with speculative evolution, and inter-species politics, where cooking becomes an act of diplomacy, and curiosity bridges the gap between species.
