Paul McLaw, lets his imagination run wild with the sometimes surreal, irreligious but entertaining satire Beyond Belief. Following the travails of St Lungo (a heavy-smoking version of Glasgow's patron saint?) and other colourfully twisted characters. An anti-war fable that pokes fun at the myths and miracles of sixth century religion in an amusing way. A wild teenage drugs party ends up with unplanned mother hood. The angriest father in fictional history gets nasty. The young mother escapes, helped by a few tricks. Our hero is born into the ways of Jiggery-Pokery, including a few resurrections. The hero visits an underground pope, does battle assisted with elephant friends then meets a very unusual secret agent nun. There is enough catering to keep the twenty first century reader hooked. That includes a salmon. The miracle ring in the parsley sauce appears in various ways. To sum it all up, this is a fine twenty first century take on a twelfth century story of a sixth century figure.
