Stephen Palmer has often turned out work that is thought provoking, filled with different ideas that really make the reader think, this short story (set in the same world has his latest novel Hairy London) is a little different, for want of a better word it is fun, a rollicking good read.

Set in an alternate world, similar to ours but totally different it sees members of the infamous Suicide Club, gentlemen of daring do in an analogous Victorian England, trying to outdo one another in adventures
