Scepticism, Inc.

(1998)
A novel by

 
The narrator of the Scepticism Inc. was made on the 3rd of November 2022 in an industrial estate on the outskirts of Chelmsford. After the three weeks of his childhood he's sent to work in a ShopALot store.

He's a supermarket trolly, and he believes in God.

In the church next door he meets Edgar Malroy, soon to be the richest man in the world.

Edgar runs a betting shop that only takes bets on metaphysical propositions and consequently he never has to pay out.

But Edgar has a tragic flaw: he's in love with Sophia Alderson, who, in addition to being ridiculously beautiful, thinks she's a messenger from God...

Scepticicm Inc is a sublime satire on the lunacies of organised religion, a heartbreaking story of a doomed love and a novel boiling over with inventiveness and crazy humour.
