Bryn Hammond I heard about that. It's got my old mate Swinburne in it. I heard he's a caricature, but then I suspect he was in life. And Burton. I'll await your verdict.

Cheers! I thought it sounded rather spiffing... Well, actually I was pretty much hooked by the notion that it's set in Albertian England (rather than Victorian). I do like a good alternate history!
