Description

TERRA, which Neil Gaiman said reminded him of Douglas Adams,Terry Pratchett and Roald Dahl, launched the novel writing career of stand-up comedian and BBC Radio 4 NOW SHOW regular Mitch Benn.

Now Terra is a couple of years older and back on earth. She's in hiding. And in Terra's World we find out why. But none of this is known to Billy Dolphin. He's just annoyed that since Terra returned to Earth Science Fiction has died a death. How wrong could a teenage boy be?

Terra may be back on Earth but the powers of the universe are not finished with her. Her old home faces a terrible threat which possibly only Terra can overcome. Just what is the black planet? To find out first Terra must learn how to survive as there is an alien bounty hunter on her trail. And only Billy Dolphin to help her.

From Publishers Weekly

09 March 2015 – British musician Benn follows his debut, Terra, with a charming but somewhat goofy story that would suit young kids better than adult readers. Billy Dolphin, a chubby young geek, has been depressed ever since Terra showed up with proof that she’s been abducted by aliens and raised on another planet, thereby destroying the creative market for science fiction. She almost immediately disappears. Billy is astonished when Tracey, a beautiful girl he doesn’t even know, turns out to love cyberpunk novels as much as he does and even asks him out on a date. Unsurprisingly, given Billy’s luck, Tracey turns out to be a hideous alien in disguise. Fortunately, Terra, who has been secretly attending Billy’s school, turns up just in time to save his life, steal the alien’s spaceship, and set off on a quest to liberate her adoptive planet. Much of Benn’s gently satirical humor lies in the depiction of neurotic aliens, the repeated use of strategic understatement, in-joke references to SF writers, and vowel-free names (e.g., Crkl-sh-Gkh-sh-Lfft) that are only funny once.
