The Japanese Devil Fish Girl and Other Unnatural Attractions

Robert Rankin's Far-Fetched-Fictional Steampunk sequel to THE WAR OF THE WORLDS!
The Japanese Devil Fish Girl and Other Unnatural Attractions
Product Unavailable
The pickled Martian's tentacles are fraying at the ends and Professor Coffin's Most Meritorious Unnatural Attraction (the remains of the original alien autopsy, performed by Sir Frederick Treves at the London Hospital) is no longer drawing the crowds. It's 1895; nearly a decade since Mars invaded Earth, chronicled by H.G. Wells in THE WAR OF THE WORLDS. Wrecked Martian spaceships, back-engineered by Charles Babbage and Nikola Tesla, have carried the Queen's Own Electric Fusiliers to the red planet, and Mars is now part of the ever-expanding British Empire. The less-than-scrupulous sideshow proprietor likes Off-worlders' cash, so he needs a sensational new attraction. Word has reached him of the Japanese Devil Fish Girl; nothing quite like her has ever existed before. But Professor Coffin's quest to possess the ultimate showman's exhibit is about to cause considerable friction amongst the folk of other planets. Sufficient, in fact, to spark off Worlds War Two.
Robert Rankin is the author of THE HOLLOW CHOCOLATE BUNNIES OF THE APOCALYPSE, THE TOYMINATOR, KNEES UP MOTHER EARTH, THE BRIGHTONOMICON, THE WITCHES OF CHISWICK, THE DA-DA-DE-DA-DA CODE, NECROPHENIA and RETROMANCER. He lives in Brighton.
