Inhaltsangabe: This is a darkly funny set of 13 linked tales by the legendary Python. How do you feel about your phone? Or your car? I bet you don't think about them much, except when they go wrong. But what if they go really wrong and turn properly bad...evil, even? Join Terry Jones on a journey into the dark heart of machines. Meet the lift that took people to places they didn't want to go, the vacuum cleaner that was too powerful, the terrifying train to anywhere and Mrs Morris, a little old lady from Glasgow, who turns out to be a very resourceful heroine...Brisk and cheerful on the outside but as dark as Roald Dahl's finest within, Terry Jones' collection of thirteen cautionary fables will make you look at the 'helpful' inventions that surround you in a very different way. "Evil Machines" is charming fable suitable for Luddites of all ages or anyone those who like a bit of Pythonesque edge to their silliness.
Über den Autor: Terry Jones is a legend. Not in the sense that he's a long-dead or semi-mythical figure about whom stories are told around roaring log fires (although that might still happen). No, Terry Jones is a legend because he's achieved more than ten men might reasonably expect to do in a lifetime. He and Michael Palin wrote many of the most famous sketches on Monty Python's Flying Circus (he was the one usually in a headscarf or a bowler hat). He co-directed Monty Python & the Holy Grail (1975), a film so funny it made all subsequent films set in the Middle Ages seem like comedies. He also directed The Life of Brian (1979) a film so funny it was banned in Norway (according to the Swedes). His more serious historical books helped convince us that Geoffrey Chaucer himself was murdered by a naughty Bishop, and that the oh-so-perfect Knight in the Canterbury Tales was a rotter. In 2004,he wrote Terry Jones's War on the War on Terror which reminded us that you can't force an abstract noun to surrender. He has written many series of stories for children and as recently as 2009 became a father again himself, despite being quite a lot older than people who do this kind of thing tend to be. His other non-literary passion is real ale, which led him to set up us own brewery, Penrhos, in 1977 (it's inaugural ale was 'Jones' First Brew').
