Collected for the first time, seven of Adam Roberts' peculiarly popular parodies, including spoofs of THE HOBBIT, DOCTOR WHO, STAR WARS and many more!
Here, collected together for the first time in eBook (because quite frankly, who would want to carry all of these around as actual books Imagine the scorn on the bus!) are seven of Adam Roberts' superb parodies of popular culture.
From the Soddit and his not-a-shameless-cash-in journey to the cavern of Smug the dragon - during which he finds a ring, which may well feature in later books and/or films - to A dragon with a girl tattoo (look, it was very popular at the time, OK ), here you will find lovingly crafted, affectionate (well, sometimes) takes on some of the most loved - or at least financially successful - "works of art" of our time.
Contains THE SODDIT, DOCTOR WHOM, THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, THE McATRIX DERIDED, STAR WARPED, THE SELLAMILLION and THE VA DINCI COD.
