About John Drake
John Drake is originally from the Wirral but is now an adopted Dubliner. He specializes in the under-represented genre of satirical historical fiction and wrote his first 'serious' line of writing at the grand old age of forty. He can usually be found sandwiched somewhere in between a good pun and a thesaurus.

Unfortunately for Genghis, his successor is on the wrong side of the city walls.
It’s ending. All of it. Everywhere.
The sort of people who know about these things think, on balance, that something should be done about it. The good news is that the head of planet Arcadia’s Zooming Division, General Buck, has a plan. The bad news is he hasn’t really thought it through.
When Professor Doubt Zooms a morally-inclined burglar, Scratch, from the English town of Southend-on-Sea to Arcadia in the Promantary Nebula he is more surprised than his subject to discover three more life forms have made the journey from Earth with him.
One of them is Mr Raisbeck, a stuffy middle-class Englishman who seems more concerned about missing the delivery slot for his new sofa than his trip through space and time. He and Scratch must single-handedly save all life in the universe with nothing more than their bewildered confusion and a copy of the best-selling book of the third millennium, Lady Bumpkins And The Case Of The Knotted Artichoke.
