A Toaster on Mars



For fans of Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams comes a hilarious new space and time adventure.
The year is 2509 and Earth is a rather polluted blue dot that suffers from global warming, overpopulation and not enough people using deodorant.
Blake Carter, star agent with the Planetary Bureau of Investigation, isn'apos;t having a good day. First he'apos;s beaten up by a bunch of religious zealots, and then he'apos;s assigned a robot-sorry, cyborg-as his new partner, right before his ex-wife calls to tell him his daughter has gone missing. His car keeps criticising his driving, and finally, to top things off, the world is held to ransom by his nemesis, evil genius Bartholomew Badde.
Can things get any worse?
Darrell Pitt began his lifelong appreciation of Victorian literature when he read Sherlock Holmes stories as a child, quickly moving on to H. G. Wells and Jules Verne. This early reading led to a love of comics, science fiction and all things geeky. Darrell is the author of A Toaster on Mars and the Jack Mason Adventures, a series of five novels including The Firebird Mystery (a Notable book int he 2015 CBCA awards) and, most recently, The Lost Sword. He lives in Melbourne.
'apos;The adventures of Blake Carter and Nicky Steel, along with commentary by editor Zeeb Blatsnart, bring a lighthearted science fiction story to life. A Toaster on Mars is a laugh-out-loud and thoroughly enjoyable read!'apos; Melanie Nemer, Austrek President
'apos;This is a fun, exuberant book to read which sees the main character, Blake Carter, on a non-stop race around the solar system ending up on the titular Mars (Carter on Mars anyone?)...The book is an obvious homage to Douglas Adams but is not slavish in its interpretation and what I really liked, as an SF fan, was picking up on all the other SF references in the story. I particularly enjoyed the inclusion of an immersive 3D version of Plan Nine from Outer Space...4.23657 toasters out of 5.'apos; Dallas Jones, Doctor Who Club of Australia
'apos;This novel crackels with wit...the fun doesn'apos;t let up.'apos; Reading Time
'apos;Upper Primary and Lower Secondary students who appreciate the ridiculous will enjoy this fast paced book with its zany sense of humour. There is nothing subtle about the irony in the novel which creates many laugh-out-loud moments.'apos; ReadPlus
'apos;This pseudo-science-fiction book provides laughs of all types: readers will progress from snickers to giggles to, finally, belly laughs and shouts of outrage...puns, shaggy dog stories, snarky remarks, and hoaxes are just a few of the humorous elements used expertly here.'apos; Kirkus Reviews 
'apos;A jaded (some might say washed up), hardened investigator with a twelve-year-old is an unusual narrator for a YA tale, but Australian author Pitt pulls it off with aplomb...It'apos;s not quite Douglas Adams amounts of interstellar wonkiness, but given the fact that there'apos;s a sentient Swiss cheese sandwich threatening their lives at one point, it comes close'apos; Bulletin of the Center for Children'apos;s Books

'apos;A manic caper full of talking cards, espionage blunders, Brady Bunch psychosis, and comedic interjections from the book'apos;s fictional editor, as Carter and his partner travel from the depths of the Mariana Trench all the way to Mars (where, spoiler alert, there are no toasters). Packed with references to contemporary culture, this satirical, quirky sci-fi adventure might appeal to fans of Douglas Adams'apos; well-loved Hitchhiker'apos;s Guide to the Galaxy.'apos; Booklist 
'apos;The adventure begins and holds its own in a tale full of jokes, puns and carnivorous sandwiches, yes, really. A comic tale that doesn'apos;t disappoint, curl up with a cuppa and a sandwich (if you dare!) and enjoy...'apos; AND Guide'apos;Works exceptionally well...I can'apos;t wait to see what weird adventures are next in store for our heroes.'apos; Bookba
