However I started reading Moon Over Soho in Sunday's rain and finished it a scant 24 hours later. And then turned the house upside down looking for Rivers of London on account of not remembering anything that happened in the last twenty pages of that, bar the brokered peace, and certainly not the start of Moon Over Soho. A happy time was had by all. And this time in Rivers of London I catch a whiff of Peter being Sam Vimes, which whizzed past me last July.
paleaswater has sent me the book that Ima Ichiko's Ritsu will probably write as his dissertation. Pandemonium and Parade, a scholarly study of youkai. I have a couple of Japanese books on the subject, lightweight and not exactly informative, so this may be the English academic correction I need.
