Rippling good read.

Just purchased the latest 'Laundry' novel by Charles Stross-Nightmare Stacks' of which we had a preview reading at Sasquan last year and found it bears a dedication to Terry-'In memory of Terry Pratchett who showed us all how it's done'. Excellent.

The 'Laundry' books are well worth a read as they are a cross between H.P.Lovecraft and James Bond! With added humour.

Nice one Charles.

In case you haven't found and read them already, there are three Laundry Files novellas/novelettes: Down on the Farm, Equoid, and Overtime, free to read on Tor.com.
Links to them and other stuff from Charlie here
