Product description


"Rankin is so bloody good... you can't help but laugh along with him. Rankin pulls it off with impish glee. Congratulations on the big Three-Oh to the self-proclaimed father of far-fetched fiction. He's still on top form." (Phil Kelly DEATHRAY)

"Necrophenia is epic, laugh-out-loud funny. There's also some very clever writing. After all these years, Rankin is still as fresh and inventive as ever." (Martyn Casserly SCI FI NOW)

For all the comedy, Necrophenia is a dark book. Fans will love it anyway. (David Langford SFX)

Rankin [has a] gift for surreal dialogue. His back-and-forth, off-kilter banter attains a truly Marx Brothers level of wit and intensity at times. You won't be able to put down this rambunctious, giddy tale of supernatural musicology. If Mike Mignola and Terry Gilliam had scripted and filmed the Beatles in Help! (1965), the results might have resembled this book. (SCi-FI WEEKLY)

Robert Rankin is the Frank Zappa of the SF and Fantasy World: an undoubted genius, if something of an accquired taste. (FORTEAN TIMES)

Rankin's legion of fans will be delighted by this gallimaufry of silliness, told with the author's hallmark fragmented, rapid-fire prose. (Eric Brown THE GUARDIAN)

Book Description

Private eyes, glamorous dames, ukulele maestros, a lost city of gold and millions and millions of zombies? It can only be a Robert Rankin novel!
