THIS GROTESQUE, GOTHIC, theatrical fantasy is quirkily set in the future. England is now ruled by the King Emperor Billy, ably supported by his brother Hal, and the still surviving ‘King Mother’ has emerged as the most vowerful verson in the countrv. A whole novel could be written on this theme alone, but Duncan Fallowell has a great many more to explore and expound upon in this seriously titillating book.
