Boldly original and wildly entertaining, this darkly sparkling gem combines horror, humour, mystery and fantasy.
Roger Zelazny (1937-1995) is one of the most revered names in SF and fantasy. During his lifetime he was honoured with numerous prizes, including six Hugo and three Nebula Awards. He wrote more than fifty books, including the Amber novels, Lord of Light, and A Night in the Lonesome October.
"The last great novel by one of the giants of the genre."-- George R.R. Martin
'A madcap blend of horror tropes and fantasy . . . There aren't many authors who would set out to write a novel in which the Wolfman and Jack the Ripper were the two heroes . . . And I'm not sure anyone else could have made it work.'* Science Fiction Chronicle *
'Sparkling, witty, delightful. Zelazny's best for ages, perhaps his best ever.'* Kirkus Reviews *
