Robert Rankin signing at FP

Forbidden Planet is hosting a signing by best-selling author Robert Rankin for his latest novel The Mechanical Messiah, at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Saturday 24 September 1.00 ‘ 2.00pm. 

‘Robert Rankin is one of the great British eccentrics, standing alongside Viv Stanshall, Spike Milligan and Neil Innes, amongst others. ‘To call Rankin irreverent doesn’t begin to describe just how very good he is at playing with the rules’, says the Mirror, while The Daily Express says: ‘Everybody should read at least one Robert Rankin in their life’ – and it’s right. The Independent maintains: ‘He is an author best read in large doses. His impressively individual style means that he becomes funnier the more you read him’, The Observer admires ‘ the stark raving genius of Rankin . . . the plot comes together with alarming and deformed brilliance’. The newest opus from the Master of Far Fetched Fiction will enhance his reputation even further: it’s time to stop Rankin being a hidden gem and make him the National Treasure his fans already believe him to be.’
