Sir Toby Redivivus
As promised (threatened?) I have just published a third book, which can be viewed, previewed, and ordered at http://tiny.cc/tzlue and http://tiny.cc/dijsu. This is possibly the final compilation of adventures of the five theologians from hell, in which yet another pan-European escapade develops into a trans-oceanic voyage to the Caribbean, and thence to Dubai, culminating in therapy in the final chapter for the author and his fractured personality.
The title is a reference to Nero Redivivus, and the belief that the infamous Roman Emperor Nero had risen from the dead to continue his egregious rule, a view slightly encouraged by some comments in the biblical book of Revelation. In a similar vein of thought, the Sir Toby narratives were thought to be finished, until a fresh batch of chronicles appeared, which form the basis of this volume.
Students of biblical numerology will attach significance to the fact that this volume represents the eighth of the Sir Toby narratives. Similarities between characters in the book and contributors to Open Source Theology, living or dead, are entirely imaginary. Sir Toby’s is, as usual, the entirely real backpackers’ hostel in Prague where the stories originated in a postmodern theological convention. The author encourages contributors to sample the hospitality of Sir Toby’s, and its proprietor Matthias Schwender (paulchen), on any visit to Prague.
