Toby Frost's third humorous SF/steampunk novel, Wrath of The Lemming Men, has just been published by Myrmidon Books, and is even part of a 3-for-2 promotion at Waterstone's. Can you feel your wallet parting?
An epic story of war, honour and suicidal rodents… from the depths of Space a new foe rises to do battle with the British Space Empire: the lemming people of Yull, ruthless enemies who attack without mercy, fear or any concept of self-preservation. At the call of their war-god, the Yull have turned on the Empire, hell-bent on death or glory - preferably both.
When the lemming army is defeated at the battle of the Tam Valley, the disgraced Colonel Vock swears revenge on the clan of Suruk the Slayer, Isambard Smith's homicidal alien friend. Now Smith and his crew must defend the Empire and civilise the stuffing out of a horde of bloodthirsty lemming men - which would be easy were it not for a sinister robotics company, a renegade Ghast general and an ancient brotherhood of Morris Dancers - who may yet hold the key to victory…
The cliffs of destiny await!
Toby's two earlier novels about Captain Smith - Space Captain Smith and God Emperor of Didcot - are also available from Myrmidon.
