Product Description

Review

Wonderful fun (Publishers Weekly)

Tremendously good, geeky fun (Daily Telegraph)

Book Description

The alternately chilling and hilarious sequel to The Atrocity Archives.

From the Back Cover

Some agents have all the fun.

Others save the world.

Bob Howard is an IT expert and occasional field agent for The Laundry, the branch of Her Majesty's Secret Service that deals with occult threats.

Dressed (grudgingly) in a tux and sent to the Caribbean, he must infiltrate a millionaire's yacht in order to prevent him violating a treaty that will start a war with an ancient underwater race. Partnered with a gorgeous American agent who's actually a soul-sucking succubus from another dimension, Bob's mission is to stop the bad guys, avoid getting the girl, and survive - shaken, perhaps, but not stirred.

Praise for The Laundry Files

'IRREVERENT, PROVOCATIVE, OFTEN UNSETTLING AND UNDENIABLY EFFECTIVE'

Kirkus Reviews

'ABOUT A BRANCH OF THE BRITISH SECRET SERVICE TASKED WITH STAVING OFF A LOVECRAFTIAN ARMAGEDDON. SMART, LITERATE, FUNNY.'

Lev Grossman - Time Magazine

About the Author

Charles Stross is a full-time science fiction writer and resident of Edinburgh, Scotland. The author of six Hugo-nominated novels and winner of the 2005 and 2010 Hugo awards for best novella ("The Concrete Jungle" and "Palimpsest"), Stross's works have been translated into over twelve languages.

Like many writers, Stross has had a variety of careers, occupations, and job-shaped-catastrophes in the past, from pharmacist (he quit after the second police stake-out) to first code monkey on the team of a successful dot-com startup (with brilliant timing he tried to change employer just as the bubble burst). Along the way he collected degrees in Pharmacy and Computer Science, making him the world's first officially qualified cyberpunk writer (just as cyberpunk died).

He's currently working on a variety of novels, including the fifth volume of the Laundry Files, "The Rhesus Chart". In 2013 he will be Creative in Residence at the UK-wide Centre for Creativity, Regulation, Enterprise and Technology, researching the business models and regulation of industries such as music, film, TV, computer games and publishing.
