From release/information:

I've cited British writer Kim Newman's short fiction numerous times here on SFRevu, for I really do believe he is one of the best (and most fun) short fiction writers around. His long works ain't bad either!

Now, courtesy of Monkeybrain Books, and a small press run by US author Chris Roberson (I reviewed his novel Paragea, a couple of issues ago)there is this new Newman collection, featuring Richard Jeperson, a member of The Diognenes Club - a branch of British Intelligence that deal with the more bizarre type of case... "haunted trains and seaside resorts, murders in utopian communities and London's vice district, voodoo and mind-altering therapies". With his customary attention to detail and great sense of fun, Newman's stories, set in the 70's, are peppered with contemporary references, cultural and kitsch and the whole collection is just one big, groovy thing, man! Highly recommended.
