If I tell you this is the prequel to the five books of the Brentford Trilogy you will get an idea of the wacky nature of this man. Fans need no introduction, newcomers prepare to be enthralled. He really does have an amazing imagination; you’ve got to read it to believe it. He’s great.

Magic, time travel and football, not exactly your everyday combination - but the fate of mankind hangs upon the result. Of course.
There's big trouble in little Brentford. Property developers are planning to destroy the borough's beloved football ground and build executive homes on the site. Shock! Outrage! Horror!
The lads of The Flying Swan, Brentford's most celebrated drinking house, take up the challenge. Surely with these stalwarts working for the cause, Brentford's football ground can be saved?
Would it were so, but this is Brentford and ancient forces of evil are forever stirring in the borough: Old Testament terrors, Lovecraftian loathsomes and beasties from the bottomless pit. And if the team make it through to the final, it's going to be a match that no one will forget. What with the fate of mankind hanging upon the result. And everything.
