Publisher's Synopsis

A fantasy of the familiarly absurd, 'Love & Light & Marzipan' is a story that takes on all the big stuff: Identity, how all things connect and not being able to find the marmalade.

Following a freak accident, Henry Salmon, a young vicar, possessed by the consciousness of Trone Scorges, an alien explorer, goes into a coma. In order to save Henry's life, Trone and his companions are forced to intervene, but when the accident is revealed to be just one of many events that should not have occurred, they are required to correct the anomalies in time, that they themselves are responsible for. Unused to the vagaries of causality, they encounter baffling features of human existence such as freewill, coincidence and cotton buds , whilst simultaneously and unintentionally becoming more humanised in the process. It eventually becomes apparent that in order to fulfil their obligations to their human hosts, sacrifices must be made, as the worlds of the predictably ordinary and amazingly weird fight it out over who gets the last biscuit…

'This is somebody who can actually, really, really write with a flourish - with a curlicue!' - Mark Kermode
