“I'm only a third of the way into this book [Genghis Kant] and it is hilarious - everyone should buy it - it is easily as funny as Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Spinal Tap and Terry Pratchett . . .”
“I was just sitting in my kitchen reading Genghis Kant when I laughed so hard I blew toast and jam all over my freshly washed clothing drying on the clothes horse. Thanks for that . . . deeply brilliant writer. Deeply impressed.”
"I'm reading . . . 'Ghengis Kant' at the moment. Very funny, I think Steve's work is exceptional!"
" If you like Monty Python, if you like a very good story and if you like great imagination, you will love this book. Check it out . . . ."
The story features the world's worst rock singer - Genghis Kant -and his band, the aweful "Calligula's Pants" and their long-suffering manager, the wrestling promoter Joe Dyer. Generally regards on Earth as utterly terrible, the band and Genghisd in particular are approached by aliens to perform at a major arts festival on their home world where unbeknownst to them Genghis is regarded as a rock god and has zillions of fans.The band are paid a large sum of money and are whisked off to the alien world to meet their destiny. All this seems to good to be true and indeed so out turns out to be because the aliens are, when all said and done, incredibly alien - as indeed one would have to be to appreciate Genghis' brand of musical terrorism.
If you have as much fun reading it as the author had writing it for you, you'll be all right.
