The Monuments of Panda Johnson by Panda Johnson
Do you fee like you want to read something just that little bit different? A sci-fi story that will make you laugh? The monuments of Panda Johnson is the book for you. Follow Panda, the toasted rice pudding sandwich loving alien and friends in their bizarre, funny and unique journey across the Universe, as they fend off forces of evil, clones, aliens and overly large cannibals in way too small silver bikinis.
Will Alice, the fluffy headed, mutating transgendered, invisible rabbit adoring, potential love interest to Panda get her man? Can bambii, whose limited vocabulary, ever convey her true feelings to Blinknott, Pandas best fiend? See the overly large chested Misty harangue Dang, the ex-Ohm Monk who so desperately needs a wash and more socks. See them, and others fight against the forces of evil... Genevieve and Lord Overworn.
Find out why there is a rubber duck on the cover. Can an interstellar warship really be powered by a record player? We say no! How good can a torturer with a stammer be? Just how does a tiger disguise himself in a Bakers? What does the Council of Ohm and missing socks have to do with Mlikht Nak de Tor? What does that even mean? And why is there a Seagull in a cardboard box? Puzzled? I sure hope so.
The first of the Panda Johnson trilogy will leave you desperate for more, that being said Panda Johnson and the Death of the Gods should be out late 2016.
The Monuments of Panda Johnson
The Monuments of Panda Johnson isn’t my usual sort of science fiction book – it’s a comedy for starters – and anyone who knows me knows I have absolutely zero sense of humour (well, according to the husband I don’t anyway). So, the Monuments of Panda Johnson begins with a nice little prologue setting out the scene, and it’s certainly an interesting premise.
Panda lives on the one hundred and fifty-third floor of a building that reaches up through the stratosphere. He’s got a job in a burger bar and besides attending a meeting on a Tuesday, has no need to ever leave the orbit high he lives in, although a quick look at the synopsis would suggest otherwise.
As with the other books I’ve listed on here, I’ve only really read the first couple of pages, but I love the writing style of Panda Johnson. I love the image of the orbit highs (versus the decay of the lower levels) and cannot wait to see what misadventures he gets into with his alien friends.
