Middle England meets aliens. And a broken vacuum cleaner. Who is more than he seems. Complete with oozily gross villains and a scarily real depiction of the, um, delights of a British city convenience store.

Completely original, with great humour and description. Whitmore has a unique way with language. I particularly love the description of the body-hopping hero, McKillop, waking up in a body which is, to say the least, in less-than-suitable shape for adventure. Don't you just hate it when that

Whitmore creates an alternate universe in stories that is both lifelike and zany. If in storytelling you like Doctor Who on TV and/or the Hitchhiker's Guide in prose, this series is for you. Whitmore's turns of phrase are amazing, and I am rarely amazed. I find myself grinning about this or that "thing he said" long after I've finished reading. Cool series, and so well done.

My fantasy comes bundled with plenty of width to make up for the absence of height. Shallow suburban stuff is where I'm at, with the occasional interstellar sci-fi crisis spooned into the mix alongside dredgings from the swamp of myth. Sometimes it's funny and sometimes it's dark -- mostly it's both at the same time.
