Penumbra

I've just started reading Robin's new book, Ajax Penumbra 1969. It's already shaping up to be as good as his debut, Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. Read them both. And don't forget to read his excellent Annabel Scheme, an Internet-age SF-based Sherlock Holmes with quantum computing and bananas.
