He wasn’t fooling with the “Omnibus” part of the title, was he? Thank Gawd that’s done.

As has been remarked elsewhere, he does like an extract from a novel does our Mr. Haining, and this can be irritating, galling even, if it’s disguised to make it look as if you’re getting one of the author’s “lost” works.

But, as with The Midnight People, we can forgive much on the strength of the rest of this one, especially the finds and less familiar exhumations.
