Borphee Infotaters, Inc. was a producer of magic spells, as well as
infotaters. Due to the bankruptcy of the Frobozz Magic Grommet Company
in 956 GUE, a severe shortage of infotaters developed by the following
year. For the duration of that crisis the company substituted (at the
last minute and at great expense) a special birch-bark-bound abridged edition in
book form, known as the "Field Guide to the Creatures of
Quendor." The unabriged version of this book by Jason Shanboz, was originally published in 913 GUE.
