Robert Rankin's THE BRENTFORD TRILOGY - seven books and counting - catapulted him into the dizzy heights of "cult success", but over the years that cult following has grown and Robert Rankin is now the second best-selling writer of comic fantasy in Britain, after Terry "He Always Makes Me Laugh" Pratchett. Were you aware that there are, hidden in the streets of Brighton, twelve ancient constellations, like the Hangleton Hound and the Bevendean Bat ...well, there are: and on each one hangs a tale, a tale so strange that only The Lad Himself, that inveterate spinner of tales and talker of the toot, Hugo Rune, can get to the bottom of them. And he'd better do it quickly, because if he doesn't solve the dozen mysteries before the year is out, that'll be the end of the world as we know it. And everything.

"If you liked the lunacy of The Goon Show, outrageous running gags, names that rhyme, terrible poetry, and an often inspired and playful use of language, this will be right up your street." -- Barbara Davies STARBURST "Rankin's Milligan-esque mind shows no signs of fatigue or flagging. Rocking good fun." -- Daniel Coysh THE MORNING STAR "All Rankin's old charms remain fresh and punchy in this wonderful novel. Like all great comedians, Rankin is an excellent wordsmith and he combines magic, humour and pirates perfectly to leave you chuckling all the way through." OUTLAND "From the bizarre to the plain daft, this is a book you won't be able to read in public for fear of laughing out loud. Absolutely hilarious." THE LINCOLNSHIRE ECHO "Robert Rankin proves his talent for the fantastically bizarre once again in this highly original adventure...Plenty of laughs and twists. It's difficult not to enjoy this ridiculous yarn." DREAMWATCH "Yet another slice of far-fetched fiction in the Rankin tradition. It'd laugh-out-loud funny." -- Guy Haley SFX
