Angela Breen meets with Nert, leader of the Children of Glord the Glorious, a legendary hero, and helps form a successful people's army. The President declares himself Emperor and withdraws his forces from Earth to fight her army forgetting in his panic the Rebel Armies, the New Moral Few, Tzu's Kung Fu Warriors and the demented robot. However, he has one last throw in which Julian has the opportunity to show just how much of a waster and coward he is. But, as they say, it will all end in tears, and so it does. The war over, Julian hopes to relax but his troubles are not over. The mad axeman, ex-fireman Sidney Weddell is on the loose with a sharp axe, the Debt collectors are after him and his girlfriend has finally given up on him. However, all is not lost when help comes from an unexpected quarter, and even Bates and Fish cannot arrest him for his crimes on Earth, where his foul mouthed, drunken mother plays a part in saving the Aliens, Dart and Drat from a messy assassination. And the Doomsday Bomb? It drifts, grumbling into outer space.

James Apps emigrated to the Isle of Sheppey after wandering around the Antipodes for half his life. Born in the Medway Towns, and spending much of his time as a Fitter and Turner in Kent he boarded a ship in Southampton and sailed to New Zealand where he worked in the trade with a hop across the Tasman to South Australia and Tasmania during the mid 1970's. It was as a result of an industrial injury, and being forced to give up working as a tradesman that he began writing and reading poetry in public, in pubs and hals and on Community Radio. In 1995, encouraged by an insightful consultant at the Takapuna job centre in Auckland he enrolled at Auckland University as a mature student, although some might say - ripe - and gained a Masters in English Literature. Deciding that family ties in the UK were a stronger attraction than poverty in New Zealand James returned in 2000 with Sophie the cat, living with his Sister and Brother in Law and then Friends until crossing the Swale to live on the Isle of Sheppey. He worked as Teaching Assistant in Sittingbourne and is now retired pursuing his interests of writing, painting and taking part in local activities.
