Time is relative.

Four short prequels

from the

Lawnmowers, Inc. universe!

One researcher.

Many universes.

A hell of a discovery.



P. J. Benney is a fantasy and science-fiction writer living in London. After the opening chapter of his novel Déjà Moo won the University of Roehampton's Novel Writing Prize in 2013, he supposed he should probably finish the rest of it. A few people have described him as funny, but he's not sure if this was a compliment or not. His current hairstyle is 'surprised'. 

Grunge Rock


A Lawnmowers, Inc. Sequel

When Lily the prize-winning Holstein begins to exhibit supernatural symptoms, witch Cynthia Pannettière and celebrity CEO Daniel Wesley reluctantly reunite for a midnight road trip to deliver Lawnmowers, Inc.'s mascot to the magi authorities. Accompanied by Judith, Vince, Cherry and a secretive punk rocker named Sahila, the team must outwit malevolent magi rebels, navigate a castle that's charmed to the teeth and broker a historical truce with the enemy — all while gambling the last of their funds on an original musical that might make or break Lawnmowers, Inc. for good.
