Description

The debonair psychic investigator Richard Jeperson is the most valued member of the Diogenes Club, the least-known and most essential branch of British Intelligence.

While foiling the plot of many a maniacal mastermind, he is chased by sentient snowmen and Nazi zombies, investigates an unearthly murderer stalking the sex shops of 1970s Soho and battles a poltergeist to prevent it triggering nuclear Armageddon. But as a new century dawns, can he save the ailing Diogenes Club itself from a force more diabolical still?

Newman's 10 mischievous tales, with cameos from the much-loved characters of the Anno Dracula universe, will entertain fans and newcomers alike.

He’s Still Got It

Kim Newman is in my opinion one of the most criminally underrated fiction writers working today. He’s an expert at incorporating familiar characters we all know and love into a fascinating world in which we see our beloved literary, film, and television icons in ways we never have before. His new characters interact seamlessly with our favorite icons and his world building is top notch. His work is fun, insightful, clever, original, horrifying, nuanced, and has a surprising amount to say about our own world. I buy every KN work opening day because he consistently surprises and entertains. Definitely give it a look/listen.

Buy it!

You don't have to a Newman fan or have read any of his bookstore enjoy this wonderfully performed novel. If you like Dr Who, James Bond or just like adventure then this is for you.

I don't often stop reading/listening mid-book

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

You can't tell a book by it's cover or it's title - these are facts that I should have remembered before buying this audiobook.
I haven't read anything by Kim Newman, Esq. before but it seems he has a really big following. All I can say of this book is that it wasn't for me.

I liked Jefferson the main character, I even liked some of the supporting characters - but the majority of the development of the character was description of what they were wearing. In the case of almost every female it sounds like she fell out of the spare wardrobe department of Barbarella. I get that this is set in the late 60's/early 70's but come on- one more vinyl bikini and knee-high go-go boot and I might have started screaming and not been able to stop.

Would you ever listen to anything by Kim Newman again?

No

What about William Gaminara’s performance did you like?

He has a wonderful voice.
