'Grotesque and depraved and
above all very funny.'
Ardal O'Hanlon


Robert Caligari is a thoroughly evil thirteen-year-old who gets his kicks from kicking pigs.  After a humiliating episode with a bacon butty, Robert realizes just how much he loathes the human race - and his revenge is truly terrible.

Outrageous and funny, this subversive horror-fantasy from Tom Baker (ex-monk, ex-sailor, and the ultimate Doctor Who) has become a cult classic.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
