Description

A new novel from a master of comic fantasy, Tom Holt.

New Evil.Same as the Old Evil, but with better PR.

Mordak isn't bad, as far as goblin kings go, but when someone, or something, starts pumping gold into the human kingdoms it puts his rule into serious jeopardy. Suddenly he's locked in an arms race with a species whose arms he once considered merely part of a calorie-controlled diet.

Helped by an elf with a background in journalism and a masters degree in being really pleased with herself, Mordak sets out to discover what on earth (if indeed, that's where he is) is going on. He knows that the truth is out there. If only he could remember where he put it.

Reviews

Holt adds to his repertoire of comedic sf, one of the most difficult genera acts to master. Theo is an engaging hero; his brilliance is counteracted by his laziness and his compassion, which is matched by his sense of survival. Place this title alongside Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman's Good Omens, Pratchett's Discworld series, and the absurdist works of mainstream authors such as John Barth and Gilbert Sorrentino.-- "Library Journal (Starred Review) on Doughnut"
One for physicists as well s Krispy Kreme-loving policemen.-- "T3 on Doughnut"
Blonde Bombshell is a clever, funny, tirelessly inventive, apocalyptic leg-hump of a book.-- "Christopher Moore, New York Times bestselling author"
Like the deep-fried snack after which it's named, this sci-fi novel is sweet and fun.-- "Sun (UK) on Doughnut"
A light read from the prolific humorist; a romp round the multiverse.-- "SFX on Doughnut"
This is a must-read for those who grew up in awe of The Phantom Tollbooth...Holt achieves near-perfection in his new comic fantasy.-- "Publishers Weekly on The Good, The Bad and The Smug (Starred Review)"
Tom Holt's Doughnut presents a roller-coaster ride through the world of physics and the origins of the universe.-- "Library Journal"

Holt achieves near-perfection in his new comic fantasy...A must-read for those who grew up in awe of The Phantom Tollbooth.

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

This continuation of Holt's zany series about interdimensional travel via circular pastry will appeal to those missing the late Terry Pratchett.
