Were you aware that there are, hidden in the streets of Brighton, 12 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. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " After reading four of his books, I've decided that I like the more Hugo Rune-themed novels best. Granted, he references all of his books back and forth, and characters from one end up in another all the time. But, if the books could be divided into series, I think this one would fit more with the Witches of Chiswick (which I heartily enjoyed). The ending was really nice to this one too, and I didn't get bored halfway through like I did in Fandom of the Operator. I guess like any prolific fiction writer, some of his work is better than others (see above for more of this). "

    " Maybe the oddest of Rankin's novels. Like the shortest midget. Not the best title, but you damn sure want to see what it means. "

    " So great! I read this super slow cuz I didn't want it to end! Ending was great! If you are a fan of Hugo Rune, the most amazing man that ever lived, this is a must read! "

    " not as funny as "the hollow chocolate bunnies of the apocalypse" but pretty funny. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathysue | 12/31/2013

    " Definately one for lads, I'm sure the boys find it very amusing, but it's really not my kind of humour. "

    " Read this as a result of hearing the BBC Radio play. Was much more enjoyable to read than I thought it would be! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert | 12/3/2013

    " Only gave this one 3 stars as i listened to the dramatised audio version which was quite horrible to listen to... the story was great as always but unabridged would of been better "

    " okayish, funny "

    " Excellent read - fabulous! Classic Rankin, up there with Pratchett! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 4/26/2013

    " Another classic of absurd-humorous sci-fi by Rankin set in Brentford and starring Hugo Rune - the man himself - in a bizarre conspiracy laden story involving secret zodiac mysteries laid out in the streets of Brentford. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Craig Smith | 4/2/2013

    " Enjoyable read, but not one of Rankin's best. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kristen Gurri | 10/9/2011

    " I read a review about one of Rankin's books and thought I had found a British Carl Hiaasen. It's been a week I haven't slogged more than 20 pages into the book. It's so slow! Maybe I'm missing a lot of small idioms but still . . . . I can't do it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 9/15/2011

    " Even better than 'Hollow Chocolate Bunnies'....like all his books the narrative just gets in the way of the story. :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Seraphina | 7/24/2011

    " Bestest, most weirdest book EVER!!! Loved it! <3 "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jonathan Kirton | 6/16/2011

    " I think I heard a radio adaptation of this a while ago. The book is not brilliant. I found that even though I have a very dark, twisted sense of humour I didn't take to this book at all "
