P Lovecraft. Was offered this book at a bargain price and figured I d give it a try Well written and anyone who is both a Holmes and Lovecraft fan should like it. Only criticism is that this is book 2 of a 3 book set and the denouement relies on some occurrences in the first volume Not a deal killer but would have probably been a little better if I had read the first one. Recommended May eventually get the others when I run short of reading. James Lovegrove absolutely captures the voice, vision, and incredible imagination with exceptionally clear prose of two of the most beloved genres If you love Holmes or the Cthulhu mythos, or both, read EVERYTHING by Lovegrove you will not be disappointed I usually hate period writing by contemporary authors There s almost always an anachronism, verbal or environmental, to kick you out of the dream, or some authors don t even bother to learn the period s grammar Not so Mr Lovegrove, who writes with a period feel but without the preciosity that usually comes with Victorian writing.
James Lovegrove est l'une des figures de proue de la nouvelle SF britannique. En une poignée de romans et de nouvelles, il a imposé son regard inventif et critique sur le monde contemporain. Dans cette satire du consumérisme, il ressuscite l'anticipation, dans la tradition de George Orwell, avec l'efficacité implacable de films comme Cours, Lola, cours ! et Magnolia.
