Greetings, human. Welcome to the website of Paul Mathews – comedy novelist, playwright, cat lover and the brains behind several comedy Twitter accounts. Apparently, he’s quite a funny guy, too. At least, that’s what he keeps telling everyone.
Who am I? I’m Brian the auto-tech – a robot from Mr Mathews’ We Have Lost comedy-thriller series. I’m highly intelligent, extremely efficient and much better looking than Mr Mathews, so you’ll see a lot of me around this website.
I’ve just received an urgent e-comm from Mr Mathews to say his third novel, We Have Lost The Coffee, has just been published. It’s about Britain running out of coffee in the year 2045. This sounds more like a horror than a comedy to me, although I have been assured by Mr Mathews that it is ‘very funny’. But then, he would say that.
Here’s some other news that I’ve been instructed to tell you. The first two books in the series, We Have Lost The President and We Have Lost The Pelicans, are now available as audiobooks. This is much more convenient for robots, like me, who find it difficult to grip real books. (That doesn’t mean I’ll be buying them. I’m just talking hypothetically.)
As well as Mr Mathews’ novels, this website provides information on his plays and social media activity (including the @IamComet67P and @IamPhilaeLander Twitter accounts).
There’s also a blog and a section where you can sign up for Mr Mathews’ Very Funny Newsletter. It’s a fortnightly e-mail update that is guaranteed to make you laugh and humans also get the chance to win freebies. Robots, however, cannot subscribe. Sorry R2-D2 and C-3PO – I don’t make the rules around here.
