An awkward teen with a terrible haircut has a reversal of fortune when he finds artefacts from the future lining a seagulls' nest.
In a godforsaken barn, Presidents Eisenhower, John Adams and Rutherford B.
Hayes are bemused to find themselves reincarnated as horses.
Clyde and Magreb - he a traditional capes-and-coffins vampire, she the more progressive variety - settle in an Italian lemon grove in the hope that its ripe fruit will keep their thirst for blood at bay. "Russell can take Antarctic tailgaters, an army of seagulls or simply a window and twist a tale that explodes on the page and lingers in the mind". (The Times).
