Greetings from the Gryphon:---I do have a pre-order in on this, hopefully for enough copies to instigate an automatic shipment.

Howard-an agent for the British supersecret organization known as The
Laundry-has time sheets to complete and field liaison meetings to attend. In The
Jennifer Morgue, Lovecraft meets Ian Fleming in this new "Bob Howard" adventure
from Charles Stross, author of the 2005 Hugo Award-winning novella "The Concrete
In 1975, the CIA made an ill-fated attempt to raise a sunken Soviet ballistic
missile submarine from the depths of the Pacific Ocean. The team salvaged a
device, codenamed "Gravedust," that permitted communication with the dead-the
very long dead. Enter Ellis Billington, glamorous software billionaire, who has
acquired Gravedust by devious means. Billington plans to raise an eldritch horror,
codenamed "Jennifer Morgue," from the vast deeps, and communicate with this
dead warrior for the purpose of ruling the world. Bob Howard, horribly miscast in the
"Bond, James Bond" role, must inveigle his way aboard Billington's yacht, figure out
what the villain is up to, and stop him.
In addition to the novel-length The Jennifer Morgue, this volume also
includes an added bonus story, "Pimpf," featuring agent Bob Howard in the world of
virtual gaming, along with a thought-provoking Afterword entitled "The Golden Age
