The Laundry Files series

Postby Phil_Gray » Sat Nov 01, 2014 5:39 pm

Charles Strosss take on Cold War spy thriller (ala Harry Palmer or James Bond) meets with Lovecraftian Cthulhu mythos and all that that implies, very deadpan, very down to earth... now in it's fifth iteration...

Start with the Atrocity Archive... (re-reading it now for the umpteenth time) and work your way up the scale...

As to gameability - 7TV?

Just finished the Rhesus Chart. :)

There is also a new collection of 3 short stories as well.

Also awaiting the PB, really like this series.

7TV would work I think, so might this:

Yeah :-)

I was reading the afterword and he mentions DG as something he stumbled on 6 months after writing AA.

Wonder if there's a movie adaptation in there somewhere?
