THE ABOMINABLE SHOWMAN, EXCLUSIVELY AVAILABLE AS AN AMAZON KINDLE EDITION.

HOORAH, HAROO AND SAINTS BE PRAISED...BARRY'S BACK.

Yes, it's true. the galaxy's best loved time-travelling holy guardian sprout, Barry, has returned for his last ever adventure.

And if that alone isn't worth making a big fuss about, then how about this?

The year is 1927 and the British Empire is about to celebrate Queen Victoria's ninetieth year upon the throne. And where better to do this than aboard the most expensive and exclusive cruise ship ever built? The mile-long SS Leviathan, a space liner/pleasure craft, orbiting Earth, where, in the spirit of the Jazz Age, anything goes. For in space the laws of Earth do not apply and rich folk can really indulge themselves.

Meet Lord Jonathan Crawford, gentleman adventurer.

Lady Agnes Rutherford, secret agent.

The "Three Owls", Aleister Crowley, Master of the Arts Magickal"

Al Jolson, politically incorrect "minstrel" and Voodoo High Priest.

And Al Capone, a right dodgy geezer.

And let us not forget the Master and Commander of The Leviathan, Count Ilya Rostov, the 20th Century's very first super-villain.

Add into the mix a vegetable lamb, a reluctant schoolboy plucked from the nineteen-fifties to save the world and more space pirates than you could shake a sticky thing at. Stir in God, a modicum of excruciating poetry and a big spoonful of Armageddon and you may well have got started into THE ABOMINABLE SHOWMAN.

This stand alone, old school, space adventure, written in Robert Rankin's unique style, shows that this best selling and much imitated author is still at the very top of his game and that his mind remains one of a kind.
