To Scotland Yard, it's a mystery more baffling than any ever faced by Sherlock Holmes, so they turn to his creator f

I've been reading this series, Time Wars, since either the late 1980s, or the early 1990s. I know some of the books I was able to buy new when they first appeared, but most were before my start reading the series. It's an important point because the books became very difficult to find very quickly. They seemed to go out of print almost instantly, and second hand copies were hard to come by. So, while this isn't exactly a long series - I think there are just a total of 12 or 13 books in the serie ...more

A geneticist from the far future has continued his mad plans (and tickled his psychotic sense of humour) by creating non-supernatural, but super-powered versions of Dracula and the Wolf Man, then set them loose in 1890s London. And it's up to t

Short book that took a long time to get through (again). I read the entire series years ago, and having read so much since then, have forgotten details that generate an "Oh yeah." when I come across them (as in remembering the set up for the last four.)

I thought this a bit forced and less enjoyable than the predecessors.

Really enjoyed this one: London, late 19th century, Arthur Conan Doyle, HG Wells, AND Bram Stoker all mixed in with the Temporal Corps I've grown to love. ...more
