The Renton Tenting trilogy comprises three books that fall into the humorous sci-fi genre. This statement will, of course, have the same effect on 95% of the reading public as telling them that all the books come with a free offer of anthrax. This is a pity. If they could suspend their deep prejudice against science fiction in general (and humorous sci-fi in particular) for just long enough to embark on one of these books, then they would encounter a pleasant surprise.
Renton Tenting himself is a highly entertaining character, and his adventures are not only highly amusing but also unavoidably thought-provoking. In particular, they provoke thoughts about how we, as a species, are treating our real, non-sci-fi world in a far from humorous way.
As an added bonus, each book in the trilogy is equipped with an identifiable beginning, a splendid middle and an easily recognizable end.
