Summary
There is big and evil magic abroad upon the face of the Earth. History has been changed: the Germans won WWII, America is a nuclear wasteland, and The Wife's Legs Cafe is serving Bratwurst rather than the proper British banger. To set it all right, the world needs Hugo Rune, a man who offers the world his genius, and asks only that the world cover his expenses. Hugo's job rewriting history includes a faithful acolyte, beautiful spies, advanced alien technology, killer robots, death rays, an ancient god and Hugo's arch-enemy, the sinister County Otto Black
Summary
Occult adventurer Hugo Rune and his acolyte, Rizla, find the fate of the world on their shoulders as they awaken to a 1967 where the Nazis control the United Kingdom, the United States was bombed with nuclear weapons during World War II, and the key to change mankind's fate lies back in 1944
