An epic in four movements, this is the third book in Robert Rankin's highly acclaimed meta-Victorian series.

To end Man's inhumanity to Monkey and bring a little joy into the world.Lavinia Dharkstorrm has a dream of her own. Although hers is more of a nightmare. To erase Man and Monkey alike from the face of the Earth and to hasten in the End of Days.Then there is the crime-fighting superlady, all those chickens from the past and the unwelcome arrival of The Antichrist. Things are looking rather grim on planet Earth...
