Robert Fleming Rankin Robert Rankin was born on July 27, 1949 in Parsons Green (London, England). Thanks to Robert, each time releasing a new version of his biography when the next book is published, it is practically impossible to isolate any reliable information about the author, it is only known that in the 80s he worked for the Watermans Arts Center. The author`s writing career began in the late 70s. Robert`s books are a unique mix of science fiction, fantasy, occult, urban legends, metafiction, steampunk and parodies of famous works by other authors. Most often, his work is compared (to the great displeasure of Robert) with the books of Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams and Robert Asprin, while Rankin himself refers his books to the self-made genre "Far Fetched Fiction" (according to him, in the hope that in bookstores he will be given separate section). In 1981, The Antipope was published, initiating the Brentford cycle, which scoffs at the clichés inherent in horror, science fiction and fantasy. At the moment, the Brentford octology also includes the novels The Brentford Triangle (1983), East of Ealing (1984), The Sprouts of Wrath (1988), The Brentford Chainstore Massacre "(1997) (nominated for" British Fantasy Award ")," Sex and Drugs and Sausage Rolls "(1999)," Knees Up Mother Earth "(2004)," The Brightonomicon "(2005) ) (nominated for a British Fantasy Award) and the adjoining Pooley and Omally series. The Armageddon cycle is also distinguished, consisting of the novels Armageddon: The Musical (1990), They Came and Ate Us, Armageddon II: The B-Movie (1991) and The Suburban Book of the Dead , Armageddon III: The Remake ”(1992), which tells the story of Elvis Presley traveling through different times and is based on the premise that the entire history of mankind is directed to be shown like an extraterrestrial soap opera. Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse was awarded an SFX award in 2003. It should be noted that the division of Robert`s novels into cycles is rather arbitrary, since the events of most of his books are set in Brentford (a suburb of London), with the indispensable participation of the secret service "Ministry Of Serendipity" and many common characters. Since the novel "Snuff Fiction", all subsequent books by Robert Rankin have become bestsellers (at least in Brentford itself).  Science Fiction Laboratory .  Wikipedia .  Bibliography Novels 1981 - The Antipope 1982 - The Brentford Triangle 1984 - East Of Ealing 1984 - The Sprouts of Wrath 1988 - Armageddon: The Musical 1991 - They Came and Ate Us: Armageddon II: The B-Movie 1992 - The Suburban Book of the Dead Armageddon III: The Remake 1993 - The Book Of Ultimate Truths 1994 - Raiders Of The Lost Car Park 1994 - The Greatest Show Off Earth 1995 - The Garden Of Unearthly Delights 1995 - The Most Amazing Man Who Ever Lived 1996 - A Dog Called Demolition 1996 - Nostradamus Ate My Hamster 1997 - Sprout Mask Replica 1997 - The Brentford Chainstore Massacre 1998 - Apocalypso 1998 - The Dance of the Voodoo Handbag 1999 - Sex and Drugs and Sausage Rolls 1999 - Snuff Fiction [= World in a snuffbox, or Fiction with murder]. 2000 - Waiting for Godalming 2001 - Fandom of the Operator 2001 - Web Site Story 2002 - Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse 2003 - The Witches of Chiswick 2004 - Knees Up Mother Earth 2005 - The Brightonomicon 2006 - The Toyminator 2007 - The Da-da-de-da-da Code Stories and Stories 1998 The Boscombe Walters Story [excerpts from A Dog Called Demolition] Essays 1998 What I & # 039; m Doing Here
