Of course, I read it with my map of London spread wide, the one I bought for Moon over Soho. Didn't help me with the outlying areas like Ealing and Hounslow. I need a map of the *boroughs* of London, all of them.
Mhh and also-- all this 'eight million people on two thousand years of history, what enchantments and power they build up, sinking into the stones themselves!' talk. Yes, I do go on myself about how the past builds up in London and fantods me more than a little; but Griffin is more about the cumulative effect of Londoners, living and dead, than history. So why do the 13 million people in Tokyo (35 million in the greater urban area) not have the same effect? As urban areas go, London is pretty far down the list.
