Were you aware that there are, hidden in the streets of Brighton, twelve ancient constellations, like the Hangleton Hound and the Bevendean Bat? Well, there are, and on each one hangs a tale, a tale so strange that only The Lad Himself, that inveterate spinner of tales and talker of the toot, Hugo Rune, can get to the bottom of them. And he'd better do it quickly, because if he doesn't solve the dozen mysteries before the year is out, that'll be the end of the world as we know it.
"As humorous fantasy goes, The Brightonomicon is a triumph of gleeful nonsense." Publishers Weekly
"One of the rare guys who can always make me laugh." Terry Pratchett, author, Discworld series
