Getting fired can ruin a day…
…especially when you were the Prince of Hell.
Will Satan survive in English suburbia?
Corporate life can be a soul draining experience, especially when the industry is Hell, and you’re Lucifer. It isn’t all torture and brimstone, though, for the Prince of Darkness, he’s got an unhappy Board of Directors.
The numbers look bad.
They want him out.
Then came the corporate coup.
Banished to mortal earth as Jeremy Clovenhoof, Lucifer is going through a mid-immortality crisis of biblical proportion. Maybe if he just tries to blend in, it won’t be so bad.
If it isn’t the murder, cannibalism, and armed robbery of everyday life in Birmingham, it’s the fact that his heavy metal band isn’t getting the respect it deserves, that’s dampening his mood.
And the archangel Michael constantly snooping on him, doesn’t help.
If you enjoy clever writing, then you’ll adore this satirical tour de force, because a good laugh can make you have sympathy for the devil.
Get it now.
How did Sam Applewhite end up living in a tiny caravan with her dad?
How does local company Synergenesis survive with no customers and a cast of clueless employees?
And why is everyone desperate to get their hands on a stuffed kangaroo toy called Joey Pockets?
In the height of summer, it’s not just holidaymakers who are drawn to the seaside town of Skegness. Desperate thieves and callous killers are searching for a hidden treasure and they don’t care who they hurt in their quest to claim it.
The most important question of all is, can Sam get to the bottom of this mystery before those closest to her are put in further danger?
Praise for the Sam Applewhite books:
“Original, inventive and funny — what more do you want in a crime drama?”
“An up-to-date sassy Agatha Christie.”
“The characters here are so real that you feel you know them after just a few pages.”
“Crazy, laugh out loud mayhem all the way through, and an amazing finale. Can't wait to read the next one in the series.”
“Lovable main characters, greedy villains who self-destruct with a vengeance and enough laugh out loud moments to make my day.”
Michael soon finds that being a good person involves more than helping out at Sunday school and attending church coffee mornings. He has to find his purpose in life, deal with earthly temptations and solve a mystery involving some unusual monks and a jar of very dangerous jam.
Heide Goody and Iain Grant have written a wild comedy that features spear-wielding cub scouts, accidental transvestites, King Arthur, a super-intelligent sheepdog, hallucinogenic snacks, evil peacocks, old ladies with biscuits, naked paintball, stolen tractors, clairvoyant computers, the Women’s Institute, and way too much alcohol.
When an armed robber targets a local bank, things quickly go wrong and hostages are taken. Retired magician Marvin Applewhite finds himself in the firing line and no magic tricks are going to get him out of this situation.
The police say they’ve got the matter under control but Marvin’s security consultant daughter, Sam, thinks there’s something strange going on. Why has a law-abiding man suddenly turned to crime? How can it be an armed robbery if the robber has left his gun at home?
As the hours tick by and the threat of violence escalates, Sam has to put the pieces together before it’s too late because, in this money heist, things just don’t add up…
Being a demon in Hell has its own problems. There’s the increasingly impossible torture quotas to meet. There’s the entire horde of Hell waiting for you to slip up and make a mistake. And there’s that weird staircase in the service tunnels…
Brother Stephen of St Cadfan’s and Rutpsud of the Sixth Circle, natural enemies and the most unnatural of friends, join forces to solve a murder mystery, save a rare species from extinction and stop Hell itself exploding.
The fourth novel in the Clovenhoof series, Hellzapoppin’ is an astonishing comedy featuring suicidal sea birds, deadly plagues, exploding barbecues, dancing rats, magical wardrobes, King Arthur’s American descendants, mole-hunting monks, demonic possession and way too much seaweed beer.
Meet Sam Applewhite, security consultant for DefCon4’s east coast office. .
She’s clever, inventive and adaptable. In her job she has to be.
Now, she’s facing an impossible mystery.
A client has gone missing and no one else seems to care.
Who would want to kill an old and lonely woman whose only sins are having a sharp tongue and a belief in ghosts? Could her death be linked to the new building project out on the dunes?
Can Sam find out the truth, even if it puts her friends’ and family’s lives at risk?
Now, twenty-something years later, there is a real-life quest. Life as a monk has hardly prepared Brother Stephen for the mission ahead. Demon Rutspud is definitely not a damsel, but he is in distress. The evil occultists are real and if Stephen doesn’t rescue Rutspud from a fate worse than death, no one will…
Sword-wielding Satanists, stir crazy demons, super-smart squirrels, magical garbage and a suitcase that cannot be stopped run riot in a story about the bonds of friendship and dark deeds in suburban cellars.
Parenthood can come as a shock to some. It’s especially shocking if you are Satan, the Prince of Hell, and are trying to live a quiet life of semi-retirement in suburban England under the name of Jeremy Clovenhoof.
Clovenhoof quickly finds that being a single parent involves more than lullabies and nappies and has to contend with social disapproval, paternity tests and, possibly, the end of the world.
The fifth novel in the Clovenhoof series, Beelzebelle is an anarchic adventure, featuring a psychotic monkey au pair, runaway coffins, badly stuffed animals, strip dominoes, fire-breathing ferrets, pimped-up prams, well-meaning middle-class mums, apocalyptic floods, the largest act of public nudity Birmingham has ever seen and way too much homebrew Lambrini.
But nothing can keep this devil down. He’s got the business acumen and the spunk to make a fortune and found the independent nation state of Hooflandia. Come see the really big wall! Enjoy the nudist beach! Visit the combined log flume and waterboarding torture centre!
The seventh book in the Clovenhoof series, Hooflandia, is a ridiculous romp, featuring ventriloquist dummies, cut-price funerals, sexy archbishops, robot cars, musical butt plugs, tax avoidance and a million angry nuns.
It’s the end of the world as we know it, but someone still needs to do the paperwork.
Morag Murray works for the secret government organisation responsible for making sure the apocalypse goes as smoothly and as quietly as possible.
Trouble is, Morag’s got a temper problem and, after angering the wrong alien god, she’s been sent to another city where she won’t cause so much trouble.
But Morag’s got her work cut out for her. She has to deal with a man-eating starfish, solve a supernatural murder and, if she’s got time, prevent her own inevitable death.
If you like The Laundry Files, The Chronicles of St Mary’s or Men in Black, you’ll love the Oddjobs series."If Jodi Taylor wrote a Laundry Files novel set it in Birmingham… A hilarious dose of bleak existential despair. With added tentacles! And bureaucracy!” – Charles Stross, author of The Laundry Files series.
But, hey, there’s no mileage to be gained from telling the kiddywinks that monsters are real.
Morag Murray is one of the god appeasers, an end of life carer for an oblivious planet, keeping everything calm and under wraps until the day the world ends.
But in the city someone’s buying souls and dealing the kind of magical drugs that guarantee a really bad trip and, if Morag doesn’t do something about it, the end of the world might just happen a lot sooner than anyone planned.
"A hilarious dose of bleak existential despair. With added tentacles! And bureaucracy!” – Charles Stross, author of The Laundry Files series.
