Poppycock Place Series -Sky Sailing Heroes

NASA had a successful failure. Seven sophisticated Bio-Teks (5 "human-robots" and 2 "pet-robots"), were created for a deep space mission. The money ran out, the spaceship was cancelled and these colourful characters moved out to live in the community and report back their experiences yearly. They set up 5 small businesses in adjacent shops, happily mixing with the neighbours, in Poppycock Place.Botzi receives a treasure map from a mysterious uncle. Botzi has no money and is helped by his friends. So Noodles volunteers to take all five shopkeeper friends, Botzi, Noodles, Aurora, Banjo and Izaak up in his balloon to sail it on a trip to a South American lost city. The balloon often runs out of fuel placing our heroes in dangerous predicaments. Mexican bandits, dangerous car chases, powerful Elfin war lords, plagues of killer bees, and that’s just the easy part. The “treasure” turns out to be a dangerous instrument of power left by the pharaohs, that can enslave the world. A problem arises when Alby and Fungus, the two Bio-teks who have over-ruled their ethics modules and are growing into very selfish monsters, learn details of this expedition. ….Who will control this instrument?....Is this the makings of another world dictatorship?.....

The Idiota Code -Poppycock Place Series

Decaffeinated murder and violence creamed with humour. If you were Papa Speculatus III pontiff of the American Capitalist Church on Wall St, and the ancient Calamari Brotherhood stole the anti-clutter reactor to kill you and your Cardinals, and snitch your billions, what would you do? Hire Botzi & Noodles to investigate? The Papa did, and disaster came along for the ride. You'll giggle with terrorWhen four Zurich Gnomes of the American Capitalist Church are kidnapped, Noodles and Botzi are summoned by Papa Speculatus III to his Basilica, the Golden Sucks Tower on Wall Street to go on a mission and save them. The missing Capitalist monsignors are the only ones who hold the codes to the multi-billion bullion stored in Swiss caves. Our boys can’t unravel teaser clues which they found, and as a last resort they enlist the brains of the famous Negative Detective, Professor Matto Pipistrello to explain what is going on. Alas, some serious murders cause a change in plans, and the Bio-Teks have to return to tell the Papa he too is in great danger. The anti-clutter reactor which Noodles invented has been stolen from the CERN laboratories in Switzerland and the ancient brotherhood of the Calamari, thought extinct, has surfaced with a vengeance, not only to annihilate Papa Speculatus III but also the whole Capitalist Church….But wait! -There’s more…..Who is Leonardo da Ladro? And what are chief Nazis Hermann Goering, Joseph Goebels, Heinrich Himmler and Albert Speer doing singing Wagnerian arrangements in the key of Hitler from the skies over Manhattan?
