Randall James didn’t know he had a destiny until it interrupted his lunch one day, and it was bigger than he could possibly have imagined (his destiny, not his lunch).

That’s when he met the mysterious Marcus Han. Brainier than a clumsy butcher’s floor, and secretly the richest man in the world, he would be Randall’s companion and mentor through the challenges they must face in their struggle to stop the entire Galaxy from vanishing.

With a supporting cast of talking trees, mutant psychics, bungling cops, extremely refined resistance operatives, military trained birds, enlightened mushrooms, hallucinating AI units, cutlery collecting crabs, and his definitely EX-girlfriend to help him, he must travel back in time to the twenty-first century and begin again in a new, less tyrannical timeline.

If his departed dad, the World Police, the Planimals, or the ancient aliens don’t stop him first, of course…


Excellent laugh out loud read. Kept me gripped​ to the last page. I highly recommend if sci Fi is your thing. Look forward to the next one

A book that mixes satire, sc-fi and social commentary in a light-hearted romp through space and time. A very enjoyable read. I look forward to Mr Cattell’s next work.

A riotous rollick across a colourful dystopian backdrop, this book is great fun.

If you like clever, funny, classic ‘hard’ SF then this is definitely worth a read – in fact I found it worth a second read straight away
