Publisher's Summary

It's 1972 and Vince Cosmos is all the rage. He's the enigmatic Glam Rock star who sings about being an alien and whose followers worship him. Poppy Munday is the secretary of his fan club - Sunderland chapter - and all her dreams are about to come truewhen she finds herself drwan into the strange orbit of the Seventies' most fabulous star.

But what if Vince Cosmos really is an alien? One engaged in a secret battle with aliens already on Earth?

Written by acclaimed novelist Paul Magrs (Never the Bride, Doctor Who), Vince Cosmos: Glam Rock Detective is a full-cast sci-fi adventure starring Julian Rhind-Tutt (Green Wing) as the eponymous stack-heeled hero.

Critic Reviews

"There's a lot to like in this sweetly nostalgic look at the old glam-rock scene of the 1970s. But what makes this production exceptional is newcomer Lauren Kellegher's portrayal of Poppy Munday, the story's narrator and Vince Cosmos's biggest fan. Kellegher's delivery and northern England accent are so engaging, so personable, and so full of energy that listeners will want to climb inside their own earbuds and give Poppy Munday a great big hug. Now that's good audio." (AUDIOFILE EARPHONES AWARD WINNER)
"An enormously entertaining romp... a treat for fans of Paul Magrs." (RESONANCE FM)
"Fine performances from Rhind-Tutt and Kellegher, along with great production values throughout." (STARBURST MAGAZINE)

Strange, Glam and oddly sweet

If you're a fan of Paul Margs then you'll know what you're in for. If not I'd recommnend if you like slightly surreal stories or wacky sci-fi.

This is a full audio production told mainly from the point of view of a lass from the north making her way in London in 1972.

Glam Rock Meets HG Wells

Not bad ban interesting slant - science fiction with overtones of Ziggy Stardust. Well performed and put together. More would be good!
