Robert Rankin Synopses: In The Garden of Unearthly Delights by Robert Rankin, It was something to do with the cycles of history, the way great civilizations rise and fall. Few people noticed the changes at first, and by the time everyone realized, it was too late. Earth had left behind the age of science and reason and moved into a time of myth, legend, wizardry, and heroes.

In Apocalypso by Robert Rankin, The Ministry of Serendipity at Mornington Crescent runs everything. When it learns about a spacecraft that crashed into the Pacific 4000 years ago, it sends a team of paranormal investigators to recover it. Danbury Collins is on the team, but he isn’t keen – what if a mad alien thaws out?
