In the introduction, Garfield admits that Miles Kendig is the origin for Charlie Dark. As a result, Myerson, Cutter, Ross and Yaskov inhabit Charlie's world. The difference here is that Charlie is a troubleshooter, solving individual problems in each story. The stories are puzzles, games, and thinking pieces, both clever and entertaining. The quality level of these stories is consistently high. Highly recommended.
