I’ve not been very good at posting here lately, have I? I’ll try harder. In my defence, I’ve been beavering away on the next novel, and sorting out edits on the last one.
Anyway, I just wanted to pop by and recommend this wonderful new audio play. Vince Cosmos, Glam Rock Detective is by the indefatigable Paul Magrs, and published by Bafflegab Productions. I’ll try to post a proper write up soon, but suffice to say I absolutely loved it, and desperately want Bafflegab and Paul to do more.
Here’s what they say about it on the Bafflegab website:
Why have sales of spray-on glitter gone up sevenhundredfold in one year?
Why has a one-time songster on the drab folk scene suddenly reincarnated himself as an ambisexual rock god hero who claims he has come to save the Earth?
Just what are those strange, multi-coloured lights in the sky? Can anyone say for certain?
It’s 1972 and Vince Cosmos is all the rage. He is the enigmatic Glam Rock star who sings about being an alien and whose followers worship him. Poppy Munday is the secretary of his fan club – Sunderland chapter – and all her dreams are about to come true when she finds herself drawn into the strange orbit of the Seventies’ most fabulous star.
But what if Vince Cosmos really is an alien? One engaged in a secret battle with aliens already on Earth?
Written by acclaimed novelist Paul Magrs (Never the Bride, Doctor Who), Vince Cosmos: Glam Rock Detective! is the first in a brand-new series of mysteries set in groovy 1970s London, and stars Julian Rhind-Tutt as the eponymous stack-heeled hero.
