My 1993 satirical novel, which forms part of the backstory for something I am working on now. Still a few hard copies left, contact me if you're interested. It revolves around the hunt for the is-it-or-isn't-it-extinct Tasmanian tiger, and involves a bunch of eccentric characters. It also throws light on what became known as The Great Sperm Robbery.

When humour writer John Martin was a lad, pet shops provided simple pets for simple needs in simple times. But times have changed. "I was in the pet shop the other day and was truly startled with what they had to sell," Martin writes in this collection of stories both small and tall.

Major Jeremy Billycock-Smythe ("Oh, do call me Major B S, old boy") is a former British soldier, failed mercenary and bumbling adventure tour operator who puts his business interests on hold in a bid to save his wife's historic Australian homestead, Rowbottom. 

Along the way, he is recruited to carry out a top-secret government mission. It doesn't end nicely.

Circa 2004, I published an ebook ahead of my time. At that time there was a dearth of Kindles, iPads and e-readers. Adventure travel operator Major Jeremy Billycock-Smythe bumbles his way though this collection of short funny fiction and skewed factual stories.He is joined by convicted arsonist Jerome O'Fury and Australian author John Martin and his family, friends and foes.
