During the latter part of World War II, England's Ministry of Serendipity enlisted the services of arch-magician Aleister Crowley. Follow the discoveries of Tyler, rock star and private eye, as he leads a cast of millions including George Formby, Mick Jagger, Mama Cass, Elvis Presley and Lazlo Woodbine. Not to mention his brother Andy, the lady from Croydon who holds the secrets of the Multiverse and the corner shopkeeper who created a living room for God. And a lot of living dead. Oh – and the monster in human form whose intention it is to turn the Earth into a Necrosphere, totally devoid of life . . .
