Synopsis

With Gorgomoth the Unclean on the loose, it's up to Wednesday and Alfie to save the day - again! Book 2 in the wildly fun Wednesday Weeks series, which asks the question: In a world of magic, can science save the day? Wednesday Weeks is just starting to get the hang of this whole magic thing. But Gorgomoth the Unclean is on the loose again and he's out to ruin everything, for keeps. When Gorgomoth steals the Crown of Destiny and turns Grandpa into a frog, it's up to Wednesday and Alfie - with help from Bruce and their new friend Adaline - to track him down. But wormholes, giant pinball machines and a stolen crown are only the beginning. Throw in a floating fortress full of goblins, some misbehaving magic and a missing pair of eyebrows, and Wednesday and Alfie are going to have to take their magic - and their science - to the next level. Book 2 in the brilliant Wednesday Weeks series, which asks the question: In a world of magic, can science save the day?

Denis Knight
About the author

Denis Knight

Science fiction and fantasy author Denis Knight is a computer programmer who grew up geeking out about the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams. He has also worked as a technical writer, a delivery boy, a tutor, and, for one glorious summer, a tour guide on Rottnest Island. His favourite foods are lasagna and donuts, and his favourite Arnie movie is Eraser. He knows how to ride a motorbike and use a chainsaw, although not both at the same time. He lives in Western Australia with his wife, his two children, and his extensive collection of The X-Files DVDs. He has never been stalked by a laundry kraken, eaten by space wasps or abducted by aliens - as far as he knows.
