This review is based on an advance review pdf, supplied by the publisher.

I liked it. It's funny. Go order a copy.

I suppose that's not enough is it? You insist on more details about what it's actually like don't you?

OK, it's a pulp adventure about a half-man, half-gorilla pilot hero from the late thirties who gets sent centuries in to the future to fight evil.... sort of.

Imagine if Douglas Adams and the Zucker Brothers collaborated on a pulp movie. Maybe Mel Brooks would direct, with some script tweaks by Oliver Postgate. It has no soup dragon, but there are telepathic winking dinosaurs! Who could not love telepathic winking dinosaurs? I'm talking telepathic winking tyrannosaurs wearing red fezzes here!

I've read a few alternate history stories, in which the Germans won the second world war, but none of those future histories had the Nazis eventually evolve into peace-loving hippies!

Then there are the Rushans. There are no Rushans in Russia! Fans of classic Canadian rock will get the joke very quickly.

Rhys Hughes has come up with the most bizarre and original concept of time travel I've ever encountered. I defy readers to read the explanation of how it works and not hear it in the voice of the late Peter Jones. I'm sure there's a chapter on the subject in a certain galactic guide-book.

I had the impression early on that the author was breaking the 4th wall in this novel, but it turned out that the 4th wall had been very shoddily constructed by cowboy builders and was just full of holes, which made it prone to collapsing on a regular basis.

Sadly, this book is never going to sell more than four copies.
