We all need a little advice from time to time. When it’s all too hard; when love’s getting you down; when you wish you knew how to dispose of a body.
But who can you turn to when the chips are down?
Meet The Advisors, for great guidance and first-rate recommendations. You need it, they have it. Advice for parents, advice on sex, advice for robots trying to pass as human.
This new work by The Last Great Hunt weaves together a universe of advice; the good, the bad and the ignorable. Come with The Advisors as they take you on a journey through the cosmos of well meaning suggestions, opening your eyes to all the things you didn’t know you needed to know.
