I've been reading the Associated Shades series in linear order, and so far this was the funniest one. I won't ruin the book or go through a rundown when that's not necessary. Let me just say that a haunted typewriter - haunted because a ghost has need of it to run his newspaper - at the time was a novel (pardon the pun) concept. From there, snippets of life in Hades just gets sillier from dog taxes to trolley parties - which I imagine were the Victorian/Georgian era equivalent of our limousine parties today. I am left wanting to hold a trolley party.

I also suspect the reason why Sir Arthur Conan Doyle brought Sherlock Holmes back to life was to save him from John Kendrick Bangs.
