(From the publisher):
At last! Eddie Bear — hero of Robert Rankin's award-winning fairytale-noir masterpiece, The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse — returns in this longed-for sequel.
Somewhere over the rainbow and beyond the Yellow Brick Road stands Toy City, formerly known as Toy Town. And things are not going well for the city's inhabitants. There have been outbreaks of STC — Spontaneous Toy Combustion — and strange signs and portents in the Heavens. Preachers of Toy City's many religions are predicting that the End Times are nigh and that a Toy City Apocalypse will soon come to pass. But can it be true? Or is there a simple explanation — alien invasion, for instance?
With the body count rising and the forces of law and order baffled, it's time for a hero to step forward and save the day. Well, two heroes, actually: Eddie Bear, Toy City Private Eye, and his loyal sidekick, Jack. And they are about to face their biggest challenge yet: to save not only toykind, but mankind as well. Which should keep them out of the pub for awhile.
