y The Visitants William Tevelein , Camberwell : Penguin , 2002 Z1055351 2002 single work novel science fiction fantasy 'When a naked, naive and unnervingly Elfin entity named Pherel tumbles into a small midwinter coven gathering on the banks of an Australian river, magic happens—but there's such a thing as overdoing it. Is Pherel a demon, an alien or just your everyday mythical creature hoping to improve his English? Whoever he is, he is about to transform the lives of a large and highly eccentric cast, human and otherwise. At times, the fate of entire worlds depends on his next haphazard step. But is Pherel's progress controlled by a shadowy Master Game-player? To find out, you'll have to leap headfirst into The Visitants, a novel of bewitchment and bewilderment, sorcery and slapstick, and proof positive that travelling hopefully is a whole lot safer than arriving'.

'Somewhere something is waiting inside a stone. Somewhere several somebodies are looking for it. Somewhere a particular someone is waiting for it to be found so he can be released into a cataclysmic future. And somewhere else again, unreliable psychic Avril Audette and disaffected occult investigator Rupert Firth are joining a group attempting to validate the supernatural. This optimistic enterprise will lead the pair into a complex game of chance, skill and manipulation played by a coterie of otherworldly beings who rewrite the rules of reality on an hourly basis. Before they know what’s what (not something for which either has a natural talent), Avril and Rupert become involved in a scramble for the cryptic crystal known as First Frost, the possession of which will decide the destinies of worlds. In doing so, they are forced to cope with distractingly high levels of mutual attraction and the intermingling of their fates with those of a telekinetic amnesiac, a punk Valkyrie, a retired stuntman and his deceased relatives, the only living Elvish spin doctor, NASA, the staff of a very nice Indian restaurant, and the would-be assassins of a fellow traveller named Pherel. And then things get a bit complicated for everybody. For everybody, that is, except a something that somewhere waits inside a stone.'
