Robinson in Space is a visual, satirical record of a journey made by a fictional character called Robinson, narrated by his traveling companion and researcher, through the increasingly unknown space of present-day England. Robinson quotes Oscar Wilde: "It is only shallow people who do not judge by appearances. The true mystery of the world is the visible not the invisible. . ." His assumptions about economic failure, especially in manufacturing industry, are gradually challenged by the discovery of an industrial economy that employs few people but still generates most of the wealth of the fifth-largest economy in the world. Robinson in Space incorporates material from the award-winning film of the same name that was released just before the British 1997 General Election. The book juxtaposes the narrative and over 200 intriguing, strange-yet-familiar images from the film to take the reader on a fascinating journey through the landscapes of present-day England.

What are the origins of Adam and Eve, the world's best-known creation story' There is a strong concordance with the Genesis story of two Egyptian historical figures, Akhenaton and Nefertiti. The early chapters of Genesis are a perfect retelling of Pharaoh Akhenaton's Hymn to Aton. Aton was a god who later became the Jewish god Adjon, and later Adam. Ellis posits, with much compelling evidence, that Adam and Eve were actually Pharaoh Akhenaton and his famous wife, Queen Nefertiti. The downfall of Adam and Eve is also a reflection of the downfall of this Egyptian royal couple, as Akhenaton and Nefertiti were cruelly deposed. The river of Eden is described as having four branches, and only the Nile fits this description. That means Egypt was actually the Garden of Eden, and the true crucible for the Genesis story.
