Alice on Mars is a stand alone novella set in Rankin's steampunk Martian universe begun in the marvellous Japanese Devil Fish-Girl.

It's a hallucinogenic fable mixing War of the Worlds and Alice in Wonderland told from the perspective of a Ventriloquists dummy. Fun with a capital F this has all of Rankin's wit, off the wall humour and charm and lovely illustrations. Being so short it doesn't have time to wander off course as some of his books do and its a delight from start to finish.

A slight book. It is a piece of fun and frivolity. A coffee table book for a steampunk household.
It is designed for dedicated RR fans and it should not disappoint that community. Physically it is a quality production and is surely all that RR intended it should be.

He reasoned that by doing this he could avoid competing with any other living author in any known genre and would be given his own special section in WH Smith."
