The Bend in the Sky by David Morgan (BA 1966)

20 September 2012

The Bend in the Sky is a fast-paced humorous sci-fi read that draws us into the life of a young guy and his drop-dead gorgeous girlfriend as they struggle to save planet Earth. Their fates become caught up in a swirl of beings from other universes and Levels of Existence, a cavalcade of characters including: a sparky hoo-ray, generated in a wiring mix-up at an Upper-Level rock concert; a hugely-indebted immortal due for a pay-up visit from an inter-cosmic loan shark; a far-travelled Upper-Level personal counsellor; a universe-annihilating tyrant with a dysfunctional zoo for a mind; a fashion-crazed smart-alec with a passion for race-driving bio-mechanical beasts; a straight-talking Inter-Level clairvoyant; and a man who lives in scrambled space.

Will the young couple, with help from some of these characters, succeed in saving Earth and other parts of the cosmos from destruction? We must wait to the end to find out. The author draws inspiration from a wide range of writers, including Douglas Adams, P.G. Wodehouse, I. Asimov, J.P. Donleavy, J.R.R. Tolkien, Eugene Ionesco, Graham Greene, C.S. Lewis, Jerome. K. Jerome and Charles Dickens.

Copies of the book can be bought via the publisher, Amazon, or other retail bookstores.
