'Sebastian O' is a fin de siecle hybrid of James Bond and Oscar Wilde. An interesting foreshadowing of Moore's "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen," and recommended to fans of that series.

A big problem here is that while Morrison understands the milieu, he doesn't have Wilde's flair for aphorism (not that anyone else does either), so the character never really comes to life.

It helps if you've read Huysmans's "Against Nature." ( )

Hypocrite reader, do not seek to avert your eyes from this dreadful spectacle!
Talking to oneself, I have often thought, is the best way to be sure of intelligent and witty conversation.
