Item description for The Translation of Bastian Test by Tom Arden...

On a rocky Scottish coast lies Castle Drumhallurick, ruinous home of a long-lost laird. But who is the reclusive millionaire who has taken over the castle? And what is it that links him to a fantastical alien world, circling the faraway star system of Antares? It is 1926, and a horrifying scientific experiment is about to unfold, altering forever the life of a boy called Bastian Test. For all his life, Bastian has been kept in seclusion, shut away from the world by his eccentric artist mother. Now, after her sudden death, Bastian learns that he has a guardian he has never heard of before, and a mysterious destiny that lies in wait for him on the rocky shores of Drumhallurick.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Translation of Bastian Test?

A true gem  May 27, 2007
It's hard to categorize The Translation of Bastian Test. Black-comedy Gothic? A Robert Louis Stevenson adventure taken way over the top?

At any rate, this book cheerfully mixes a multitude of literary and cinematic clichés--a mad scientist, a nerdy assistant, a hunchback, a dissolute artist, a depraved lord, a prissy family lawyer, several faithful retainers, theatrical wanna-bes and has-beens, a crumbling Scottish family castle, hidden passages, expeditions to the Dark Continent, a mysterious fortune, hair-raising escapes, villagers with torches, space aliens, and several unconventional sexual relationships, past and present, some of which result in the discovery of entirely new parentages.

It's very funny, almost self-satirical, but you never know what will happen next. A gem that deserves to become a classic.
