If you haven't picked up on it yet, I am drawn to the Peel character and series by Conyers. It's a combination of a good character as well as solid writing. Time and time again I have been surprised by the stories that Conyers has put together and the level of detail in his plot. 'The Weaponized Puzzle' is another example of why I enjoy these books.

Conyers' strength within this book is his characters, first and foremost. From Peel to those who stand against or with him, each has a realistic set

So I read the first book in this series this morning, and had only a fair-to-middling opinion of it. The characters are good and the plot was right up my street (I'm a pushover for anything Lovecraftian). But the technical issues -- typos, word choice errors, homophone confusion -- spoiled much of the fun for me.

This one, the second book, does not have nearly so many technical issues. Since I wasn't fighting the flaws, it was much easier to enjoy the story itself.

I like the main character, Harr

excellent The Weaponized puzzle was great. I had previously read weapons grade but I like the updated version better, the old one seemed a little too Deus ex Machina. I just cant decide If I want to reread the Spiraling Worm or wait for the Elder Codex to come out.

So I read The Impossible Object (the first book in this series of short stories) a month or so ago, and I liked it a hell of a lot. The Peel stories are a fun mix of spy novels and Cthulhu mythos with an appropriate mixture of thriller and flat out weird. I dove into the next collection of stories soon after, but I'm only just now getting around to reviewing them.

The Weaponized Puzzle continues the adventures of Harrison Peel the Australian Defence Force intelligence officer who has been sucked

when I read the first book in the series, I felt it was a plot driven novella rather than character driven. In a novella, that's all fine and I was hoping for a little more in the sequel. whilst there definitely is character development, I'd like a little more.

It's a good read with a different and refreshing slant on cthulhu mythos, and I have enjoyed it, but I'll have to have a little think whether I'll read the next one

The adventures of Major Peel continue in this novel. Shoggoths, evil amorphous blobs, conspire to take over the world and the intelligence agencies of various countries organize to stop the invasion. Time travel and nuclear bombs spice things up in this quick read.

I still say that Conyers is too good a storyteller to be allowed to write so carelessly. Somebody get this man an editor.
