Hey all, we've been getting some nice press coverage of late...The Stage, The Guardian and Broadcast magazine...but we got a great write up on Chortle, the top online comedy resource. CHeck it out:

http://www.chortle.co.uk/news/2007/10/08/5874/the_radio_comedy_youll_have_to_buy

More exciting still is the announcement that top British acting star JASON ISAACS is to be Tobes de Valois (yes, Harry Potter fans, Lucius Malfoy IS the last living descendent of Christ!)

Finally the MOST exciting news of all is that you can now PRE-ORDER the 7 CD Boxset from Amazon.co.uk for a neasly 30. Go now and pre-order your set:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Brightonomicon-Robert-Rankin/dp/1405687584/ref=ed_oe_a/202-5244432-4570242

...they've yet to get much info up there, but it is really thrilling to see it in the real world after so many years.

By the way, we will announce the winner of the competition over the weekend...Robert will be making the draw on Friday (short film to follow!)

Check this stuff out, It's amazing! It is all suddenly coming to life, I can't quite believe it but I know that it's true. I'm going into the studio on Friday to record my parts, I'm all the cabbies.
I have to phone the Vatican, to see if I can get Neil made a saint now, rather than waiting until he's passed away. Which hopefully will not be too soon, although he is working himself into an early grave on this project.
Let's make him an Honourary Knight of the Sacred Order of the Golden Sprout.
Three cheers.
And all the bestest
Robert

Great news! Reserve me a copy. Thumbs Up

I haven't looked at the web-site in great detail yet. Is it likely to be available in a space saving MP3 CD version, as is my copy of 'The Antipope' dramatisation?

Saw the article in Broadcast magazine at work the other day. Nice little write-up.

Roll on release day.

Hmmm? Good point. I will ask the chaps at BBC Audiobooks and see what they reckon. maybe a limited run with all the extra material we have produced thrown in as well? I shall report back...

I agree Robert, The Sacred Order Of The Golden Sprout should be bestowed upon him. What a cast of actors as well, they better pull it off or there will be trouble (I expect)

aaargrghh! No trouble, please! I am a meek and humble servant of The Mighty Rankin.

All complaints will be handled in writing by:

Mr B.T.Timesprout
Planet Phnaargos
The Milky Way
The Universe
Penge

All replies will be sent to a time before you were alive and hidden in a boxfile in the Ministry of Serendipity.

The producer/director reserves the right to hide in a cupboard with his fingers in his ears shouting "Nyar nyar nyar nyar...can't hear you!" until everyone leaves him alone!

But hey...you're gonna love it...promise.

I'm sure you'll be able to get a copy signed at the launch Toby.

I will see to it that you have as many copies as you like signed by as many folk as I can get to sign them, Toby.
My goodness this is getting really exciting now. And I've got copies of the CD cover and everything and it looks really brilliant and as soon as the BBC have niced up the details it will be on the Amazon site,
all the bestest

As one who does not understand the world of the interweb, can I say that it is with some joy, mingled with bamboozlement, that I have just observed that Amazon have dropped the price of the Brightonomicon from 30 to 19.80. (shurely some mishtake, ed).
So perhaps it would be a very good idea to order RIGHT NOW before they notice what's happened.
What do you think?
Call up the web thingy that Neil lists above and check it out. bestest
