Product Description

About the Author

James Rickon, louche fellow from the rooms upstairs, never had a chance to be any different than he is having suffered the trivial matter of having been born a hundred years too late... With a sweet tooth for late nineteenth century French fin de siècle literature, that did little more than influence his drinking habits enough to dilute his ennui, and a penchant for old fashioned adventures James struggles on against the modern world. He is responsible for the popular Adventures of Augustus Fuller series of classic adventure fiction, brimming with anarchists, lashings of intrigue and all manner of insidious foe to quicken the pulse and lighten the heart of the reader.

I picked this from what was supposed to be Steampunk on Amazon kindle books but to me it's a Victorian detective type novel & there really wasn't anything steampunk about it. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed the book as it's a gentle read, it just wasn't what I expected. Good as a holiday read at the beach.

I do not often leave a review, unless a book is truly inspirational, well written, and as in this case three excellent stories in one book, purchased at a very reasonable price. It exceeded my expectations, and I hope that more adventures of Augustus Fuller and his associates will follow.

The book was also very well edited making it very easy to read.

Three very, very good short stories.

It's rare to find plots this good, in fact.

'The Aldbury Devil' is particularly good.

My only criticism (hence 4, rather than 5, stars) is that Augustus Fuller himself, the central character, is a bit dull. Actually, even after three stories, you don't get to know him all that well. This is especially odd given some of the other weird and wonderful characters presented by Rickon in these stories.

Definitely worth getting for fans of this genre, though.

These short adventures bounce into the supernatural, and the mundane, as Victorian gentleman Augustus Fuller enjoys life. Each short story follows the rather extraordinary adventures, and shows a shadowy Victorian world that often ends with pleasant parties.

This book is well worth a read, but it may be disappointing to anyone who wants a full explanation of what is actually going on. It's a pleasant distraction, though does in places lack explanation that strikes of a bit of deus ex machina

I'll start off by commending Mr Rickon on creating a wonderful character here in Augustus Fuller, he comes off as one part hero and one part ordinary man; I could see myself in his shoes at all the right moments. The level of detail about the political and international goings on of the time helped as well, I was immersed in the world despite it being set over a century ago.

The three stories were full of adventure and I really enjoyed the fact that each one followed its own style, from the straight up spy thrills in Casus Belli, to the mystery of The Terror Weapon and the unexpected frights of The Aldbury Devil. I would highly recommend this to anyone up for a fun read and fans of Flashman or Bond.

(Also, a fun game is to count how many times one of the characters gets thoroughly sozzled!)

This was an excellent read, well written, gripping and with just enough grit. I particularly appreciated the fact that the text was broken into 3 short stories - it really made me feel it was worth the money. The change in gendre (and form of the prose) with each story was a little disconcerting at first, but it certainly spiced up the read. I'm looking forward to further instalments!
