Review: The Concrete Jungle (The Laundry Files #1.5) by Charles Stross

Note: The Concrete Jungle is a Hugo Award winning novella included with The Atrocity Archive. I debated with myself as to if I should read this or not. I eventually decided to read The Concrete Jungle and I’m glad I did! I found The Concrete Jungle to be much more… Read more »

Review: The Atrocity Archives (The Laundry Files #1) by Charles Stross

  Note: This review is for The Atrocity Archive – the short story included in the book “The Concrete Jungle” will be reviewed separately. How can I describe The Atrocity Archive? What I’ve been telling people thus far is to imagine Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory, take away his… Read more »
