Synopsis

In which bedlam threatens to envelope the world, unless Oscar can do something about it—which he's willing to consider, providing it involves an enormous breakfast first.

When the palace of Arabesque’s aide d’camp, a cat named the Tremblees, stumbles upon a translation of an ancient language that reveals the existence of a fabled stone, he vows to find it for reasons of greed and vengeance.

With a dead dog stuck to a car bonnet, some burst luggage, a blind bus driver and an enormous number of olives, it becomes a race for Oscar, his colleague Meesha and the Tieress of Arabesque to prevent the Tremblees plunging Arabesque back into the Era of Bedlam, a horror that plagued the land a thousand years ago.

“Corfield blurs the boundary between rubbish and garbage, and does justice to neither.” - Aiden White, Barrington Points Lighthouse Keeper.

“The plot is only held together by the book’s tangled and convoluted sentences.” - Tiffany Parlek, Mortal Goddess.

“A two-in-the-morning page turner, but only because each one’s so hard to get through.” – Pannel Norbit, Curator of Exotic Fungal Infections.

Thomas Corfield was born in London several years ago, definitely before last Thursday. This was a good year for all concerned, and for him in particular, because without it, later years would mean little.
