Product Description

Product Description

The epic conclusion to the epic trilogy. And trilogies do not go out with a bigger bang than this one.
Young school boy Norman is dead. His father fell out of the sky and flattened him. And as Norman did not engage in full time employment before he died he is rather miffed to have it thrust upon him in the afterlife. At The Universal Reincarnation Company. There are too many filing cabinets and much too much paperwork.
The fault lies with God (a flawed genius, in the opinion of Hugo Rune). If He hadn’t decided to close down Hell, then heaven would not have got so overcrowded and there would have been no need to build the extension. And until that extension is built the URC will just have to keep on recycling souls and the paperwork is going to grow and grow.
And there is something very wrong going on at the URC, someone is pre-incarnating, being reborn again and again on their original birthdate with all the knowledge they had gained in their former lifetimes. Just imagine if you could do that. You’d probably end up as The Most Amazing Man Who Ever Lived.
Or something very very wicked indeed.
Cornelius and Tuppe are on the run from the law, some questions were asked regarding all that golden booty the epic pair liberated from the Forbidden Zones. Questions that the tall boy was quite unable to answer. But at least they do have another epic automobile to drive around in and a couple of feisty young women with whom to drive about. And they might have simply had a holiday, had they not met up with the ghost of a dead schoolboy and the occupant of a flying saucer and learned of Hugo Rune’s final plan, the great big plan to end all great big plans. In this concluding part all the stops are pulled out and flung through the window.
There has never been anything quite like this before and there probably won’t be anything like it again. These three books are amongst Robert Rankin’s all-time favourites and he makes absolutely no apologies for the bit at the end that always makes him cry when he reads it.
The preceding adventures of Cornelius, Tuppe and Hugo Rune can be found in

The character of Cornelius is based on the author’s eldest son, Robert, whose portrait occupies the central panel of the cover. The e-book edition of the Cornelius Murphy Trilogy is also dedicated to Robert, with many thanks from his proud father for all the work he put in during the conversion of these works and the twenty others into their present formats and for being the wonderful fellow that he is.

More About the Author

Robert Rankin describes himself as a teller of tall tales. The Morning Star describes him as 'The Master of Silliness', and his publisher describes him as The Master of Far Fetched Fiction. He is the author of more than thirty novels, of which he has sold millions of copies, and he is published - and making people laugh - around the world.

Despite his remarkable publishing success, Robert has never taken himself too seriously. He loves going on tour, signing books for readers, and his appearances at signings and conventions are legendary, often including a stand-up routine, a song (accompanied by his 'air-ukulele'), and an always-entertaining question-and-answer session. Robert Rankin is a great entertainer, whether in person or through his novels, with wit, humour and an incredible personal warmth.

But that's not all! In addition to being a talented writer, comedian and musician, he's also an incredible artist . . . so incredible, that he creates his own stunning book covers.

Reading his books can and will inspire you, scare you, thrill you and, above all, entertain you. His novels are an outlet for the soul, and food for the imagination.

Final part of the trilogy. You definitely need to read the first two parts or you will be confused but having said that I have read the first two parts and I'm still confused. Great story telling and very funny if you like that sort of thing
