Cover blurb:
Back cover blurb unconfirmed. Inside cover flaps read as follows:

A novel which takes us from a dusty secondhand bookshop on Darlington, clear across the galaxy aboard a celestial double decker bus... all the way to the outlandish world of Hyspero, and the throne room of the Scarlet Empress... and the very brink of the strange pocket dimension called The Obverse...

This is a story about an object — a glass jar with mysterious contents — being the focus of a chase between Iris Wildthyme, Panda and their new friend Simon, and a bunch of gentlemen pirates of the Dogworld, who are determined to retrieve the strange jar and its even stranger contents.


Addressing us in a tone pitched somewhere between The Mighty Boosh and Douglas Adams, Enter Wildthyme is an insouciant scifi pantomime with its heart defiantly and cheerfully in the right place, a worthy addition to this extraordinarily English, naughty and knowing genre.

Gwyneth Jones


‘Enter Wildthyme’ is at once hilarious, moving, satirical and life-affirming, and I wanted this madcap tale of the barmy old ‘transtemporal adventuress’ Iris Wildthyme to go on forever. Paul Magrs is one of the most original, exciting authors of his generation, and Iris is one of his finest creations. This truly is a book to be savoured.

George Mann
