THE MAN FROM THE DIOGENES CLUB by Kim Newman

THE MAN FROM THE DIOGENES CLUB by Kim Newman arrived today, and of course it's another great package from MonkeyBrain Books (publisher of my MYTHS FOR THE MODERN AGE Philip Jose Farmer's Wold Newton Universe, Jess Nevins' LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN books and FANTASTIC VICTORIANA, and Pete Coogan's upcoming SUPERHERO book) with a wonderful John Picacio cover.

I've read and written up crossover entries for most of these stories (but a couple are new to me), but it's nice to have all the Richard Jeperson tales in one place (except for the SEVEN STARS Jeperson piece, but I can see why that was left out).

Now, if only Amazon would stop shipping my books with corner crunch damage. It's annoying, but not quite enough so for me to package it back up and return it. Still, I should have just ordered direct from MonkeyBrain. And I'm about ready to start doing the rest of my online book ordering from Barnes&Noble.com rather than Amazon.
