Free - The Dance of the Voodoo Handbag by Robert Rankin [SF/Humor] (Amazon) [US]

Quote:
Available free for five days starting 27th July to celebrate Robert Rankin's birthday and that sports thingy in London. Complete the COMPLETELY BARKING MAD Trilogy for only £5 during this promotion ***

THE SECOND NOVEL IN THE “COMPLETELY BARKING MAD” TRILOGY
Starring Barry the ever popular sprout in the head.

Billy Barnes is the world’s most ruthless man. He keeps his granny in a suitcase under his bed and is feeding her piece by piece to The Voodoo Handbag.

Henry Doors is the world’s richest man and his company Necrosoft doesn’t just market computer software, it now sells immortality. All you have to do is sell your soul to science.

Lazlo Woodbine is the world’s greatest 1950s genre private eye. He works only the four locations. An office where clients come to call. A bar where he drinks the drink and talks the toot. An alley where he gets into sticky situations. And a rooftop where he has the final confrontation with the villain. And Laz is on the biggest case of his life. Or will be as soon as the doctor chooses to release him from the straitjacket.

Barry is the world’s most famous Brussels sprout and he lives in Lazlo’s head and he wishes to make it clear that it is not his fault that Lazlo Woodbine is confined to a mental institution. After all, he is only the voice in Lazlo’s head.

Reckoned by many to be the most extraordinary book amongst Robert Rankin’s many extraordinary books, The Dance of the Voodoo Handbag is a dark exploration of the occult which in combination with his unique brand of savage humour, creates a Techno-Gothic masterpiece that will have you laughing and shivering by turns.

The Dance of the Voodoo Handbag can be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone novel, but for full explanation of the weirdness therein contained, it forms the second instalment of the “Completely Barking Mad” Trilogy in which it is preceded by Sprout Mask Replica, and the series concludes with Waiting for Godalming. (Both available now from Amazon)

Quote:
Robert Fleming Rankin (born 27 July 1949) is a prolific British humorous novelist. Born in Parsons Green, London, he started writing in the late 1970s, and first entered the bestsellers lists with Snuff Fiction in 1999, by which time his previous eighteen books had sold around one million copies.

His books are a mix of science fiction, fantasy, the occult, urban legends, running gags, metafiction, steampunk and outrageous characters.
Most of Rankin's books are set in Brentford, a suburb of London where the author grew up, and which, in his novels, is usually infested with alien conspiracies and/or ancient evil.

Sweet! Thanks for the heads up! Looks like he is self-pubbing his backlist.
