This final fantastical outing by horror great Chambers is amusing, but pale compared to his earlier works. Nestled in-between his once-popular parlor romances, 'Police!' continues the fantastical stories of Dr. Percy, ever searching the world for zoological discoveries and love, and doomed never to find either. Chambers apes Twain more than Bierce in these comical tales, and while he hits some high points, these stories are, altogether, more amusing than intriguing.

Disappointing one-joke collection from the master who wrote The King In Yellow. Low levels of imagination and uninspired style, along with sub-sitcom levels of joke predictability sink the thing deep.

Now my review/rating is for the original Police!!! And since that has 293 p. I guess it’s unfair to compare.
