In The Toyminator, a sequel to Robert Rankin’s Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse, PI/plush toy Eddie Bear and partner Jack race to solve a series of flashy murders committed by their clones, leaving their native Toy City for a whacked-out alternative-universe Hollywood.

For Fans of…
Douglas Adams, Mother Goose, and masochism.
