** spoiler alert ** If you love Victorian fiction, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and H.P. Lovecraft, you will love this story. It's a brilliant mashup of Doyle's famous detective and Lovecraft's elder gods, in which HRM Queen Victorian and the royal family has been replaced by Lovecraft's eternal horrors. The most delightful thing about the story is how perfectly Gaiman matches Doyle's tone and style. What would Holmes' London be like with a multi-tentacled, madness inducing Queen? Read Gaiman's work to find out.
