Synopsis of this title

Somewhere over the rainbow and just off the Yellow Brick Road stands Toy City, formerly known as Toy Town. And things are not going well for the city's inhabitants. There have been outbreaks of STC - Spontaneous Toy Combustion - and there are strange signs and portents in the Heavens. Preachers of Toy City's many religions are predicting that the End Times are approaching and that a Toy City Apocalypse will soon come to pass. But can this possibly be true, or is there a simple explanation - an alien invasion, for instance. With the body count rising and the forces of law and order baffled, it is the time for a hero to step forward and attempt to save the day. Well, two heroes actually, Eddie Bear, Toy City Private Eye and his loyal sidekick, Jack: our courageous twosome are about to face their biggest challenge yet, to save not only toykind, but the world of mankind too. Which should keep them out of the pub for a while.

Reviews of this title


"There's an imaginative plot, and the author's trademark humour, making the result a hugely entertaining and engaging adventure. Eddie Bear and Jack are definitely two of Rankin's most enjoyable creations and hopefully still have many more off the wall adventures to come." (DREAMWATCH )

"The Toyminator has enough running jokes, crazy footnotes and toilet humour to keep even the hardcore fans happy - and keep the new reader chuckling with delight too. It's mad, but wonderfully funny. A typically entertaining, rude and quite bizarre Robert Rankin novel." (Sandy auden SFX )

"What you're getting is vintage Rankin. Booze sodden private dick Eddie Bear is a marvellous creation." (STARBURST )

"The insane clockwork mouse inside Robert Rankin's head shows no signs of running down. This is fantastic news for those of us that relish his compulsive brand of insanity. The master of deranged fantasy." (Daniel Coysh THE MORNING STAR )

"Wacky and slightly peverse. If the title makes you smile, play spot-the-film references." (Lisa Tuttle THE TIMES )
