About the book


This is the story of M. Francisco Fabrigas, explorer, philosopher, heretical physicist, who took a shipful of children on a frightening voyage to the next dimension, assisted by a teenaged Captain, a brave deaf boy, a cunning blind girl, and a sultry botanist, all the while pursued by the Pope of the universe and a well-dressed mesmerist.

Dark plots, demonic cults, murderous jungles, quantum mayhem, the birth of creation, the death of time, and a creature called the Sweety: all this and more waits beyond the veil of reality.

What the critics say

Matt Suddain’s debut is a crazily multilayered odyssey through space, time and the universe next door…it’s definitely not dull. No book in which the Pope addresses his enemies as ‘Bumface’ runs that risk.
- Metro

Wholly original, and by turns annoying and exhilarating, this antidote to formula fiction reads like Douglas Adams channeling William Burroughs channelling Ionesco, spiced with the comic brio of Vonnegut.
- Guardian

An extremely literate and clever story… This is a delightful book, full of surreal twists and turns of invention and humour, written in a breezy and engaging manner.
- Interzone

Literate, clever, surreal and inventive
- Bookseller
