The Educated Ape and Other Wonders of the Worlds : A Novel Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

An epic in four movements, this is the third book in Robert Rankin's highly acclaimed meta-Victorian series.

Comparable to Pratchett or Douglas Adams, the Father of Far Fetched Fiction has pulled out all of the stops with this riotous tale of wicked women, a dangerous detective and Darwin the educated ape. Lord Brentford has a dream. To create a Grand Exposition that will showcase The Wonders of the Worlds and encourage peace between the inhabited planets of Venus, Jupiter and Earth.

Ernest Rutherford has a dream. To construct a time ship, powered by the large hadron collider he has built beneath the streets of London.

Cameron Bell is England's greatest detective and he, too, has a dream.

To solve the crime of the century before it takes place, without blowing up any more of London's landmarks.

Darwin is a monkey butler and he also has a dream. To end Man's inhumanity to Monkey and bring a little joy into the world.

Lavinia Dharkstorrm has a dream of her own. Although hers is more of a nightmare. To erase Man and Monkey alike from the face of the Earth and to hasten in the End of Days.

Then there is the crime-fighting superlady, all those chickens from the past and the unwelcome arrival of The Antichrist.

Things are looking rather grim on planet Earth.
