J.W. Wells seemed to be a respectable establishment, but the company now paying Paul Carpenter's salary is in fact a deeply sinister organisation with a mighty peculiar management team.

Paul thought he was getting the hang of it (particularly when he fell head over heels for his strangely alluring colleague Sophie), but death is never far away when you work at J.W. Wells. Unlike the stapler - that's always going awol. Our lovestruck hero is about to discover that custard is definitely in the eye of the beholder. And that it really stings.

Tom Holt's exceedingly comic fantasies are populated with evil goblins, annoying sprites and people like us. However, it's not always possible to tell the difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goblin humor Tom Holt has done it again; a brilliant work of humor that would have Douglas Adams splitting a side laughing. He writes everything as if it made perfect logical sense, as if it were perfectly normal and serious. Even when his characters die from spontaneous goblin attacks at baby christenings or have their faces remolded, I'm sure Tom Holt has a straight face. Earth, Air, Fire and Custard is a beautiful addition to his already superb collection of books and fans of The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy or Terry Pratchett's Discworld series will find a new favorite author to fall in love with through Tom Holt's writing.
