4.0 out of 5 stars The Mad Scientist of Fiction, 6 Sept. 2010
This review is from: The Japanese Devil Fish Girl and Other Unnatural Attractions (Hardcover)
There are very few authors who can creatively write humour into their work and pull it off successfully. Perhaps the best known is Terry Pratchett but after him, you have Tom Holt and of course Robert Rankin. Whilst I'm not the biggest fan of his work as he's been a bit more miss than hit for me, there are moments of pure joy within and in this, his latest offering, I have to say that its perhaps one of his best to date.

Based around the War of the World tale by HG Wells, the author takes this offering one step further, brings characters to life and to be honest pulls it all together in such a mad scientist sort of way that you just have to admit the genius behind it. Add to the great characters, witty as well as appropriate dialogue, some pretty nifty description all binding this offering to the reader and you know that its definitely worth exploring. All hail Rankin, Mad Scientist of fiction.
