Book Description HTML
Bernie was planning a quiet few drinks with his mates, but instead finds himself in a barrel on the River of Time where he persuades Sharon, the boatman who ferries people to the underworld, to take a holiday. Later he meets Prometheus, as well as the satyr Silenus and the gorgon Medusa, and their collection of stone statues. If only his wife would stop calling him on the mobile phone he can't throw away, and why was Interpol called because he sent home a few Greek coins to help out with the household budget? Other stories involve different takes on the stories of Patrick and the Serpent, the Ugly Duckling and the bible's Noah.
