Apocalypso, Paperback Book
5 out of 5 (1 rating)


The Ministry of Serendipity at Mornington Crescent runs everything. And that is everything. When the Ministry learns of a spacecraft that crashed four thousand years ago into the Pacific Ocean it sends an elite team of paranormal investigators to recover it.

A mad alien thaws out, there is hell and horror all around and thousands flee in terror.

Porrig has inherited a planet, or it might be a bookshop, or it might be a gateway into another world. And Porrig is worried, because he has learned a terrible secret.

But if he told people, would they listen? No. But perhaps they should, because a mad alien has thawed out, there is hell and horror all around and thousands are fleeing in terror. And there is every likelihood of there being a bloody big explosion at the end.

Will Porrig manage to do anything about it at all?

Review by

A madcap romp around England and parts unknown, in which a group of shady secret government-types and a single lucklorn dope attempt to save the world from a giant vegetable with telekinesis and an enormous wang. I think that's what it's about. I'm not really sure. However, it's so hilarious, you really don't care that it doesn't make a bit of sense.
