Book synopsis (The back of the book says)

The sun rises late, dirty and so badly in need of a service it's a wonder it gets up at all. The moon's going to be scrapped soon and a new one commisioned - but then, they've been saying that for years...

All is not well with the universe, and though there's a hell of a tidying up job to be organised after some carelessness with earthquakes and tidal waves, surely it's crazy to get mortals to run the show? Things may be bad, but isn't that going to extremes?

The irrepressible Tom Holt hits the mark yet again with a dazzling foray into fantasy ... of the hilarious kind.

Unfortunatly, I never scribbled down what I thought about the book. But I did enjoy the book, it's Tom Holts' first humourous science fiction-novel, and is really amusing.

This book has also been translated to German.

Quotes from Here Comes the Sun

"How many spectral warriors does it take to change a light-bulb?
 One, and a stepladder. At a pinch, of course, he could stand on a chair."
The girl curtseyed again and danced off down the hill, leaving Bjorn alone at last with the trees, the birds, the squirrels and his ingrowing toenail. For a while he stood and looked aimlessy about him, until his eye lit on one tree that he recognized. It was a tall, ancient oak and he remembered it well; he had climbed it as a boy, and his grandfather had often lifted him up into its branches, pointing out to him all the marvellous things he could see. How wonderful it is, his grandfather used to say, to sit in a high tree and look out over all kingdoms of the world, as if one were God's own eyes!
  Bjorn braced his feet, grinned, and set about cutting it down.

Quote from Ye Gods!

...in the revised version to be found in the Shorter Harvard Orthodoxy:
  (a) I think therefore I am; or
  (b) Perhaps I thought, therefore I was; but
  (c) These days, I tend to leave all that side of things to my wife
