Description

Arthur (Art) Mumsby and his irritating sister Myrtle live with their father in a huge and rambling house called Larklight that just happens to be traveling through outer space. Living in an alternate 19th century, Britain has colonized the solar system and their house, Larklight, is under attack by elephant-size-space-spiders. When a visitor called Mr. Webster arrives for a visit, it is far from an innocent social call.


Before long Art and Myrtle are off on an adventure to the furthest reaches of space, where they will do battle with evil forces in order to save each other, and the universe. The escape barrel propels them into a series of fantastical episodes to save and return home.


Combining adventure, deadpan humor, politcal satire, science fiction epic and pirate caper, Wyatt weaves a rip-roaring tale. A fantastically original Victorian tale set in an outer space world that might have come from the imaginations of Jules Verne or L Frank Baum, but has a unique gravitational pull all its own.
