Vellichor Afternoons

I like trip-hop, anachronism, cats, both coffee and tea, the sound of rain on a tin roof, antique keys, pop culture as a substitute for religion, theatre, photography, Oxford commas, and, of course, reading.

The Devil You Know - Mike Carey I knew I wanted to read this when it came out since it was by Mike Carey, who wrote the Lucifer series of graphic novels. Of course, I just stuck it on my Amazon wishlist and let it linger there for, oh, a year or so...

However, I came across it in a bookstore last week and said, 'Oh! Yeah!' and left with it in my hands.

I then proceeded to read it all in like three days, enjoying every bit.

It's really, really good. Enjoyable, and funny, and clever, with a good degree of ghastly thrown in.

And as it turns out, there are now sequels...
