Not always the best writing, but delightfully quirky tales of the fantastic set in the mythical 19th century tri-kingdom of Scythia-Pannonia-Transbalkania. The author freely blends Western European, Eastern European, and Middle Eastern cultures however he feels from moment to moment, and if he feels like slowing down the middle of a story and devoting five pages to phrenology then By George he is going to do it.

Along Virgil novels and stories (the arc of which is unfinished and fragmented), Enquiries is Davidson's most sustained effort, followed only by the late stories of Limekiller. Rich and evocative of a long past, though never quite real, Mittleuropa, the stories cross Sherlock Holmes with ambiguous elements of fantasy. Highly recommended, though those who prefer their plot served unadorned will be frustrated by Davidson's byzantine style.

As if a nineteenth century naturalist, adventurer could really seek out the characters of myth and legend to study in their native habitat. Told in short stories.
