Publisher Description

View our feature on Charles Stross' The Fuller Memorandum.
National bestselling author Charles Stross brings back Bob Howard-"a British super spy with a long-term girlfriend, no fashion sense, and an aversion to martinis" (San Francisco Chronicle)

Bob Howard is taking a much needed break from the field to catch up on his filing in The Laundry's archives when a top secret dossier known as The Fuller Memorandum vanishes-along with his boss, who the agency's executives believe stole the file.

Determined to discover exactly what the memorandum contained, Bob runs afoul of Russian agents, ancient demons, and the apostles of a hideous faith, who have plans to raise a very unpleasant undead entity known as the Eater of Souls...

Bitter Arugula ,

Spectacular

Quite possibly the finest novel in Stross' series of books about Bob Howard and the Laundry.

Titles? Superfluous. Read the review, you nincompoop.

An examplary trifecta of the elements of quality storytelling: well-tempered comedic leanings, engaging pan-dimensional character-craft, and a strikingly appropriate suffusion of surprise and misdirection to keep you on your toes, yet allow you to remain grounded.

In the post-mortem to one of his short stories, Stross comments on the supreme difficulty of spinning quality comedy on the level of Wodehouse; however, though Charlie might insist upon denying the possibility of such, I consider this work to display at least as masterful command of the genre as that giant’s own (albeit in a wildly different vein or flavour, I suppose…)

Altogether Stross’s best work yet, and among such legendary deep-future masterpieces as Accellerando and some selections from Wireless… I hardly apply that title lightly.
