A Good Book: London Falling by Paul Cornell

This is going to hurt my geek cred, but when I picked up London Falling (its sample was mind boggling good), I didn't realize he'd been writing comics for ages (Demon Knights for DC).

The premise is essentially, a police procedural mixed with witches and ghosts mixed with football (soccer).  As good as it is (its damn fine), I think if I were a brit, it would punch me even harder on levels that I can't relate to as I'm no soccer fan.

The writing is robust and gritty and hurtful and the characters have grown and evolved and I'm not quite half way through.

I can't recommend this enough.  Its kind of EXACTLY the kind of monster hunter story I've been looking forward to reading.

Don't waste a minute, pick it up today.
