In a tomorrow slightly to the left of yours and mine, Maxwell van Mars fights to remain two steps ahead of a psychotic preacher and his team of lethal ninja nuns. Maxwell is a spoiled, eccentric womanizer – but is he the demon from Hell Father Forge believes he is?

As they travel across desolate, windswept Europa, Maxwell and his best friend, Wendy – an intellectual kairuku penguin – meet lifeforms who may help or hinder their goal of returning home to Erps-Kwerps, Belgium, including a hitch-hiker who may or may not be an angel, a bumbling team of agents from the Interplanetary Intelligence Agency, a gang of dimwitted human-cockroach hybrids, and a pair of well-meaning aliens with wandering eyes.

Exploring themes of religion, surreality and the complexities of human (and alien) relationships, The Insane Journey blends science fiction, magical realism and humour to create an unforgettable tale that will make you laugh and think.

Note: The Insane Journey contains adult themes that may not be suitable for children, sensitive adults or the humour impared.
