Another solid outing for our favourite computational demonologist: the Laundry takes on a suspiciously effective church group. There appears to be Serious Plot going on in the background...

Charles Stross, "The Fuller Memorandum"

Bob (O. F.?) Howard's adventures in computational demonology continue in this series' usual action-satire vein. I particularly liked the elaborate setup for a pun on "preta"...

It's hard to talk about the plot without spoiling it, which is presumably is why the back-cover blurb's more vague than usual. Also, who's that meant to be on the cover (other than Bob)?

Charles Stross, "The Jennifer Morgue"

Neat -- mad SF rather than just comedy. More interesting background. Hope Ramona comes back for future instalments.

Charles Stross, "The Atrocity Archives"

Highly amusing. Probably less amusing if you aren't an asr reader, although the series gets less in-jokey as it progresses. Has an interesting Did The Homework appendix.
