Sorry to drag this thread back to the limelight, but as both a new bod to the fforum and a staunch supporter of Mr Rankins I felt I had to stick my 'five pennithworth' in here. There arn't very many writers about like Mr Fforde but there is undoubtedly a similar vein of marvellously imaginative silliness running through the works of both these geniuses and to pooh-pooh one would be well, quite simply, to miss out..... I'll grant you HCB is not, for my money, one of Mr R's best, but try any of the seven books in the Brentford Trilogy or my favourite, Snuff Fiction. After all it's along wait until the next JF book, we've got to fill our time with something...!!
