The Antipope [Audio]

Rankins Anti-hero's Jim Pooley and John Omally have become as well known as Rankin himself and their attempts to put the world to rights, well the world that is Brentford anyway. Both work-shy layabouts who are always out to make a fast pound or two out of anyone who should pass their way. They would think it nothing to stitch each other up if they thought it would line their wallets. When not in the local betting shop. Or the Flying Swan public house. Or even a bedroom of some local lady who's husband is away working at the rubber factory on night shift they can often be found trying to best any entity that comes within the boundary of The Brentford Triangle. A mystical phenomenon that seems to draw trouble to the area. They never mean to get involved, I mean who would? But their efforts to avoid work and get money any way they can seems to lead them straight to the door of disaster. In the "Antipope", there is trouble a foot. A tramp has moved into the borough and seems to be scaring everyone with his demeanour. Soon the tramp has worked his way into the local Seaman's Mission before showing his true colours. For he is none other than Pope Alexander VI, the last of the Borgias. Can Pooley and Omally stop him from causing Hell on Earth? And will Archroy ever see his Morris Minor again?

About the Author

Robert Rankin describes himself as a 'teller of tales' and his work as 'far fetched fiction'. A seminal writer with a fluid style and a prodigious outflow, when once asked by an inspired talk-show host where he got his ideas from, he muttered something about his dog, made his excuses and left.
