So many genre's are explored by this novel and it pokes loving fun at them all and yet brings something of its own table.
Fans of sci-fi, Lovecraft, pulp-fiction and sci-fi will love this book and find all the stories delivered by a weird Moorcock like 60's twist.
This book also touches on characters and timelines from other Kim Newman books I think.
I loved it and am off to find some more!
Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon.com
1. "Gypsies in the Wood", a perfectly creepy novella that re-introduces us to Charles Beauregard and Katherine Reed.
2. "Richard Riddle, Boy Detective", a horror story told in Enid-Blyton's style, complete with ciphers (used in the cover of the book, as well).
3. "Angel Down, Sussex", a story that veers towards the science-fiction category than horror.
4. "Clubland Heroes" is more about individuality and human attitude, than anything connected to horror.
5. "The Big Fish", the story that comes perfectly under the 'hard-bolied' genre, apart from being a tribute to both H.P. Lovecraft and Raymond Chandler.
6. "Another Fish Story" is about the quest for the subterranean sea below the Mojave desert by Derek Leech.
7. "Cold Snap" is original to this collection and is a delightful tale of the last stand against something primordially strong and "how Jeperson defeated Leech again".
All in all, a fabulous collection to be grabbed and relished over a long pderiod of time. Enjoy your reading.
--W.D. Gagliani, author of Wolf's Edge
Just note that while it is a prequel it is highly recommended to read
"The man from ..." before.
