Theatre of the Gods by M. Suddain

This is the story of M. Francisco Fabrigas, explorer, philosopher, heretical physicist, who took a shipful of children on a frightening voyage to the next dimension, assisted by a teenaged Captain, a brave deaf boy, a cunning blind girl, and a sultry botanist, all the while pursued by the Pope of the universe and a well-dressed mesmerist.

Dark plots, demonic cults, murderous jungles, quantum mayhem, the birth of creation, the death of time, and a creature called the Sweety: all this and more waits beyond the veil of reality.

Peer & Press Reviews

Matt Suddain’s debut is a crazily multilayered odyssey through space, time and the universe next door… it’s definitely not dull.  No book in which the Pope addresses his enemies as ‘Bumface’runs that risk.

Imogen Russell Williams, Metro

Wholly original, and by turns annoying and exhilarating, this antidote to formula fiction reads like Douglas Adams channeling William Burroughs channelling Ionesco, spiced with the comic brio of Vonnegut.

Eric Brown, Guardian

An extremely literate and clever story…  This is a delightful book, full of surreal twists and turns of invention and humour, written in a breezy and engaging manner.

Simon Marshall-Jones, Interzone
