Overview

Tancredi is born on the same day that scientists discover a small planet they jokingly call Surprise. A planet so insignificant that it went unnoticed for millennia reveals, on closer inspection, that it will develop into supernova and is destined to be the instrument of Armageddon across the Universe.

Made rich by his invention of the MoronOmeter, Tancredi decides to make it his mission to save the world and buys a ticket on a space ship making its maiden voyage to the stars.

Beautifully illustrated and reminiscent of Gulliver's Travels and The Little Prince, Tancredi is in turn shocking and profound, undercut with the dark humour that made Tomas so scandalous and successful.

About the Author

James Palumbo began his professional career in the world of finance. In 1991 he co-founded the iconic London nightclub Ministry of Sound. He now presides over a global, multi-media business renowned for its vision and daring ideas, ensuring his continuing influence of popular culture.

Palumbo's strong opinions and refusal to be daunted by controversy have allowed him to predict with Tancredi a unique vision of the world; one paralysed by individual self-interest and lack of foresight that is unwilling to stop its own destruction.
