Spaceman No.3 

My book is a humorous novel which opens with a nebulous “being” hurtling towards our planet in a little flying saucer (he’s understandably nervous!) and “assuming” human form prior to disembarking in the early hours of a Sunday morning on top of Parliament Hill. He then meets an Irishman, who had fallen asleep on a bench on the way home, and then a man dressed as Sherlock Holmes, for fairly reasonable reasons.

The premise, or back story, is that in Thus Spake Zarathustra by the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche in the 1870s, the infamous declaration by the main character that “God is dead” was the last straw for God (on top of Darwin, et al) that he decided it was time to take a sabbatical and so took himself and his entourage (a chap called Peter is his No.2) off to the Pleiades.
Now, curious to know whether it would be a good time to return to Earth (and to check on what the Buddhists are up to), a passing space tourist (my “Spaceman”) is sort of kidnapped and persuaded by Peter to go on "a great adventure” to find out.
