A Toaster on Mars
30 May 2016
THE YEAR IS 2509 AND EARTH IS A RATHER POLLUTED BLUE DOT THAT SUFFERS FROM GLOBAL WARMING, OVERPOPULATION AND NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE USING DEODORANT. Blake Carter, star agent with the Planetary Bureau of Investigation, isn't having a good day. First he's beaten up by a bunch of religious zealots, and then he's assigned a robot:sorry, cyborg:as his new partner, right before his ex-wife calls to tell him his daughter has gone missing. His car keeps criticising his driving, and finally, to top things off, the world is held to ransom by his nemesis, evil genius Bartholomew Badde. Can things get any worse? Yes! PRAISE FOR DARRELL PITT AND A TOASTER ON MARS A laugh-out-loud and thoroughly enjoyable read!' Melanie Nemer, president of Austrek 4.23657 toasters out of 5.'
