Why does our world have a Black Sea while on other versions of Earth it’s a Black Lake? A humorous romp across the multiverse. John Berwick is the Irrelevant One, an English call centre worker stuck in a loveless relationship and dead end job. Travelling home from work one evening, an unknown woman who turns out to be the Drunken Weed, both his sister-in-law, and a minor Mesopotamian goddess working for an agency that ensures the worlds of the multiverse all follow a predetermined path, attempts to engineer his death. Her failure results in an escape for both of them encompassing an alternative Mexico, the meeting of Humans and Neanderthals, pre Roman Britain, an alternative world where France has won the Napoleonic Wars with convict transportation to Australia, a Mars colony; plus romantic involvement resulting in a bigamous wedding and unexpected children.
The first in a series
Author E. D. Robson
After earning a living in a variety of pastimes (I hesitate to use the word career as it implies some level of success and progression) and spending most of my free time part-time studying for personal pleasure (a range of subjects, from psychology and sociology to history and mathematics) I have now settled comfortably into following my childhood ambition of writing. When I’m not writing and looking after everyday life, I now spend my time reading (anything that catches my eye from newspapers to superhero graphic novels plus of course, science fantasy and fiction, watching television and swimming (not brilliantly, but I do go four times a week).
I live in the English East Midlands, between the cities of Derby and Nottingham.
The Drunken Weed is my first book and hopefully introduces new ideas and a bit of humour to a well-trodden theme of time travel.
