Reviews - What do customers think about The Secret Files of the Diogenes Club?

Pleasantly surprising sequel but not really prequel  Dec 29, 2007
Great book, very enjoyable.
Just note that while it is a prequel it is highly recommended to read
"The man from ..." before.
WE WANT MORE!  Dec 10, 2007
This is the time when Kim Newman fans have their time under the sun/moon, as Da Man's new book becomes available, allowing us to read atleast one new story. In this collection we get the opprtunity to read total seven stories, which are:

1. "Gypsies in the Wood", a perfectly creepy novella that re-introduces us to Charles Beauregard and Katherine Reed.
2. "Richard Riddle, Boy Detective", a horror story told in Enid-Blyton's style, complete with ciphers (used in the cover of the book, as well).
3. "Angel Down, Sussex", a story that veers towards the science-fiction category than horror.
4. "Clubland Heroes" is more about individuality and human attitude, than anything connected to horror.
5. "The Big Fish", the story that comes perfectly under the 'hard-bolied' genre, apart from being a tribute to both H.P. Lovecraft and Raymond Chandler.
6. "Another Fish Story" is about the quest for the subterranean sea below the Mojave desert by Derek Leech.
7. "Cold Snap" is original to this collection and is a delightful tale of the last stand against something primordially strong and "how Jeperson defeated Leech again".

All in all, a fabulous collection to be grabbed and relished over a long pderiod of time. Enjoy your reading.
