Publisher Description

In Charles Stross's novel The Atrocity Archive and its sequels, the "Laundry" is a secret British agency responsible for keeping dark interdimensional entitities from destroying the cosmos and, not incidentally, the human race. The battles with creatures from beyond time are dangerous; however, it's the subsequent bureaucratic paperwork that actually breaks men's souls. Now, in "Down on the Farm," Laundry veteran Bob Howard must investigate strange doings at another obscure, moth-eaten government agency—evidently a rest home for Laundry agents whose minds have snapped…

Charles Stross is the Hugo-winning author of some of the most acclaimed novels and stories of the last ten years, including Singularity Sky, Accelerando, Halting State, the "Merchant Princes" series beginning with The Family Trade, and the story collections Toast and Wireless. In 2010, his Laundry story "Overtime," published on Tor.com, is a finalist for science fiction's Hugo Award.

A Short Laundry Files Story

“Down on the Farm” is a short story set in the Laundry Files Series right after “Jennifer Morgue” but it can be read pretty much anytime after one becomes familiar with the Laundry Files setting.

Our man Bob Howard gets sent to the asylum that Laundry agents get sent off to if exposure to eldritch horrors from beyond finally pushes them over into actual madness. Can’t have them babbling State secrets to people, or worse using their knowledge of the dark arts carelessly! However, something is wrong down on the funny farm, and Bob needs to get to the bottom of it before something bad happens...
