According to Armageddon Expo’s website:
Robert Rankin is an unrepentant Luddite who writes his bestselling novels by hand in exercise books. He is the author of The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse, The Witches of Chiswick, The Brentford Trilogy (8 books), The Armageddon Quartet (3 books) and many more.
What Armageddon fails to mention is that Robert Rankin is absolutely hilarious; he missed his calling as a stand-up comedian.
There is a photo of Robert’s shoes below; this is explained in his author talk.
The video is below. The audio-only version will be coming soon.
