Thursday Next in Something rotten : a novel

Thursday Next, Head of JurisFiction and ex-SpecOps agent, returns to her native Swindon accompanied by a child of two, a pair of dodos and Hamlet, who is on a fact-finding mission in the real world. Thursday has been dispatched to capture escaped Fictioneer Yorrick Kaine but even so, now seems as good a time as any to retrieve her husband Landen from his state of eradication at the hands of the Chronoguard. It's not going to be easy. Thursday's former colleagues at the department of Literary Detectives want her to investigate a spate of cloned Shakespeare, the Goliath Corporation are planning to switch to a new Faith based corporate management system and the Neanderthals feel she might be the Chosen One who will lead them to genetic self-determination. With help from Hamlet, her uncle and time-travelling father, Thursday faces the toughest adventure of her career. Where is the missing President-for-life George Form by? Why is it imperative for the Swindon Mallets to win the World Croquet League final? And why is it so difficult to find reliable childcare?

  • "Publisher's description: "Detective Thursday Next has had her fill of her responsibilities as the Bellman in Jurisfiction. Packing up her son, Friday, Thursday returns to Swindon accompanied by none other than the dithering Danish prince Hamlet. But returning to SpecOps is no snap--as outlaw fictioneer Yorrick Kaine plots for absolute power, the return of Swindon's patron saint foretells doom, and if that isn't bad enough, back in the Book World The Merry Wives of Windsor is becoming entangled with Hamlet. Can Thursday find a Shakespeare clone to stop this hostile takeover? Can she vanquish Kaine and prevent the world from plunging into war? And, most important, will she ever find reliable childcare? Find out in this totally original, action-packed romp, sure to be another escapist thrill for Jasper Fforde's legion of fans.""
  • "Nach jahrelangem Aufenthalt in der BuchWelt kehrt Agentin Thursday Next mit ihrem zweijährigen Söhnchen Friday und Hamlet, dem bekannten Dänenprinzen, in ihre Heimatstadt Swindon zurück. Im Haus ihrer Mutter warten schon andere Gäste auf sie: Lady Hamilton und Fürst Bismarck, der den deutsch-dänischen Krieg von 1864 zu vermeiden versucht. Ansonsten sind es keine guten Zeiten für Dänen: Der tückische Yorrick Kaine versucht sich auf einer Welle von anti-dänischen Ressentiments zum Diktator von England ernennen zu lassen, und wenn es Thursday Next nicht gelingt, den Swindon Mallets zum Sieg beim SuperHoop (der Krockett-Meisterschaft) zu verhelfen, werden Kaine und die Goliath Corporation die Welt in den Untergang führen. Eigentlich erstaunlich, denn Goliath bereut (angeblich) alle Sünden und möchte als Religionsgemeinschaft anerkannt werden. Und was noch schlimmer für Hamlet ist: Er kann nicht zurück in die BuchWelt! Ophelia hat sein Stück umgeschrieben #133; Wird Thursday Next die Welt retten können? Und wer passt auf ihren Sohn auf, während sie es versucht? Jasper Ffordewurde 1961 geboren. Seine Romane schrieb er 14 Jahre lang neben seiner Arbeit als Kameramann bei verschiedenen Filmproduktionen. Die Reihe um die Literatur-Geheimagentin Thursday Next ist inzwischen zur Kultserie geworden."
