I am generally a huge fan of Christopher Fowler but suspect he has outgrown me: the stories in this collection are generally bleak, with just a sprinkling of black humour, and while horrible, they are not horror in the conventional sense.

Yes, many of them do feature the supernatural or unexplained, but not in the spine tingling fashion of Bureau of Lost Souls or Sharper Knives: Fowler is an excellent writer and always worth reading, but I was disappointed.

A collection likely perhaps to appeal to the fans of the new series of Bryant and May stories rather than the old, occult books like Darkest Day or Rune. Old Devil Moon was not what I expected or hoped for.
