Postcards from Venus
Postcards from Venus is the apocryphal biography of Denis Hobbs, the infamous paranormal researcher, cable TV presenter and author who mysteriously disappeared in 2007 – at the height of his failure.
Denis started out with nothing and still managed to come out with less. Here, his introverted childhood, his time as a police officer and his eccentric adult-life is hilariously recounted by his acolyte, Lee Charlish.
Embittered by a life of loss, derision and abject failure, this book documents Denis’ descent into alcoholism and his dogged determination to prove, irrefutably, that aliens exist. The arrests, the tabloid smears, the beers and falling tears are all included, along with his failed relationships and broken dreams.
Denis and Lee’s search for the ‘truth’ is often fraught and sometimes sad, but always shockingly funny and it’s no wonder this is now known as the best and most insightful book about Denis Hobbs.
Together they make the unbelievable, believable.
