Zombies in North London, death cults in the West Country, the engineering deck of the Enterprise: actor, comedian, writer, and self-proclaimed supergeek Simon Pegg has been ploughing some bizarre furrows in recent times. Having blasted on to the small screen in the gut-busting and now legendary sitcom Spaced, his enduring appeal and rise to nation’s-favourite-son status has been mercurial, meteoric, megatronic, but mostly just plain great.

I laughed, I cried, I loved this. My first ever autobio and I wonder if any other could ever live up to it. Simon P is a gem; hilarious, witty, caring, ohhhh, gush gush, he's a genuine lovely guy and he takes you along on the amazing journey his life has taken so far with a fabby snort-fest sci-fi story sandwiched between the 'real' stuff. Finished it... started listening to it all over again. Fantabulous!

Daneel Olivaw, to solve an incredible murder that has rocked Solaria to its foundations.
