Cadbury Fife’s extraordinary journey into the heart of deepest Congo was documented in The Philowankical Manifesto, which was where the character of Cadbury Fife was first streamed into the social consciousness.
Now, of course, Cadbury is ubiquitous as a definer of the social consciousness and his days as a Metaphysical Philosopher & Double Whammy Messiah are quickly being relegated to footnote status. Still, it is true that Cadbury once tried, with arguable success, to save humankind from itself.
After returning from the Congo, Cadbury went back to his work as a detective, founding Cadbury’s Detective Agency, and set about creating a new type of detective, a new type of agency, and, ultimately, a new type of storytelling.
With Cadbury’s Detective Agency, the story, Cadbury Fife brings you a stark, sinister insight into the day to day workings of the modern detective agency and a disturbing roller-coaster ride on the cable-car of his mind.
We are also blessed to be given some small tidbits of Cadbury’s lifestyle regimen in Cadbury’s Super Adventures of Daily Living, a passing notion that fizzled on the thoughtpad with Cadbury’s Sociological Analytics Club, and a grab bag of other hopelessly delightful diversions in Cadbury’s Detritus Dump.
And then, as a rather brutal aside, just when you thought your cadaver had been reduced to a pulp, you can have your soul thoroughly pureed by Cadbury’s some-time symbiotic evil twin, Cadmium Flute, in Cadmium’s Poetic Funpark of Despair.
