Meet Brinsley Kitten. He's a drunk. He's a coward. And he eats too much Battenberg cake.
He's also a blabbermouth and usually said blabberings are harmless… but not this time. Oh no. This time danger beckons.
Someone has been listening, you see. Someone who needs a capable man for a perilous mission. Someone who thinks Brinsley Kitten is just that man. Someone who couldn't be more wrong.
Sadly the someone is not to know that and before our Brinsley can even finish his gin and ginger beer, he's whisked off to rescue an ancient race of space creatures from a terrible fate. Not to mention there's also a planet to be saved from a savage totalitarian regime.
Thus Brinsley is soon blubbing his way through a mind-bending adventure of psychedelic drugs, slugs, wheelchair-bound madmen, drunken brawls, planetary destruction and psychotic space pirates. Oh and let’s not forget the Battenberg cake... that’s very important!
