Battlestar Suburbia

Battlestar Suburbia

When Darren Stubbs accidentally short-circuited a robot with his signet ring he expected to go to prison. He never expected a chance encounter with a talking lamppost and a backstreet technician called Kelly to topple machine rule and bring the Internet back into the real world. Welcome to Battlestar Suburbia, a uniquely subversive science fiction series that will delight fans of Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett and Jasper Fforde.

The No. 2 Feline Detective Agency

Meet Hettie Bagshot, a long-haired tabby cat whose whiskers twitch at the first sign of a mystery, and her best friend Tilly Jenkins. Together, they run the No. 2 Feline Detective Agency, and nothing will stop them from untangling each brain-teasing case that comes their way – though there’s always time for one of Beryl Butter’s pies along the way, of course.

The Bandy Papers

The Bandy Papers

Donald Jack’s blackly humorous Bandy Papers are classics of their kind. Opening with Bartholomew Bandy’s life in Canada shortly before leaving for Europe and the First World War, the “memoirs” follow his adventures through the war as a flying ace and into the 20s and 30s, with the last books carrying him into World War Two. When not busy avoiding death, winning medals, or oscillating through ranks like a yo-yo, Bandy spends his time driving his superior officers into apoplectic fits.
