Was quite keen to try out some Edmund Cooper and 'Jupiter Laughs' didn't disappoint at all. A varied, eclectic collection of weird, sardonic sf-tinged amusements; with one especially entertaining yarn even straying into straight forward Gothic horror with remarkable ease and efficacy.

His prose is agile, easy to read, witty, and I found much to recommend in his breezy style.

I certainly hope his novel's live up to the heady promise of 'Jupiter Laughs', if so, I am clearly in for a treat.
