Over the extended weekend of 2-5 June 2012, Great Britain and the Commonwealth (along with various other sovereign states and supporters of the British monarchy from around the world) are celebrating 60 years of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.
But fifteen years ago, in an alternate England, people gathered to celebrate the 160th jubilee of Queen Victoria, ruler of the vast empire of Magna Britannia.
Queen Victoria is celebrating the 160th year of her reign, but all is not well at the heart of the empire. An eminent professor of evolutionary biology goes missing. A catastrophic Overground rail-crash unleashes the dinosaurs of London Zoo. Is this the work of crazed revolutionaries, or are more sinister forces at work? For Ulysses the game is afoot!
So why not mark our Queen's Diamond Jubilee by remembering what happened during Queen Victoria's 160th jubilee by picking up a copy of The Ulysses Quicksilver Omnibus Vol.1?
