Reading follow-up

Mark Gatiss' The Devil in Amber is quite good ... a nicely-done spoof of the post-Victorian gentlemen adventurer/supernatural novel; sort of a cross between James Bond and H. Rider Haggard or non-Dracula Bram Stoker (if you've seen Michael Palin's Ripping Yarns, well kinda like that in book form). Now I shall have to get Gatiss' other novel about British Royal Academy agent Lucifer Box: The Vesuvius Club. :-)
