About the Author

Charles Stross was born in Leeds, England, in 1964. He has worked as a pharmacist, software engineer and freelance journalist, but now writes full time.

Reviews

Stross's third Laundry novel (after 2006's The Jennifer Morgue) continues to describe the Kafkaesque absurdity of government bureaucracies, but the tone turns dark when series hero Bob Howard accidentally kills a civilian during a routine exorcism. Bob soon discovers that there's a mole loose in the Laundry, the ultrasecret British intelligence service that deals with the implications of magic being a branch of pure mathematics. At issue is a memo by the Laundry's founder that relates to something called the Eater of Souls. The only person who knows anything about this is Bob's enigmatic boss, Angleton, but when he inexplicably vanishes, Bob and his wife and fellow agent, Maureen, are left on their own to stop CASE NIGHTMARE GREEN: the end of the world. The satisfying ending should appeal to fans of gory horror while making them question the definition of humanity. (June) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

Bob Howard, computational demonologist for the top-secret British agency known as "The Laundry," protects the world from incursions by entities from other dimensions, older and more powerful than the "elder gods" fictionalized by horror authors. When his boss goes missing, a secret dossier known as the Fuller Memorandum also disappears-and the world's existence becomes a risky proposition at best. Stross's latest series entry (The Atrocity Archives, The Jennifer Morgue) blends hard-boiled humor with Lovecraftian horror and computer programming to create a twist on the occult detective novel. Howard is a distinctly unheroic hero, likable, self-effacing, and tenacious in his pursuit of unspeakable evil. VERDICT Like Jim Butcher's "Dresden Files," this series could prove popular among fans of urban and occult fantasy. Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
