Book 3 of 2020 - The London Satyr

It was going to be a tough job following The Essex Serpent but The London Satyr by Robert Edric held its own. I don't know how long this book sat on my to-read-shelf because it was deposited there by the Bestwick

Again, we visit 1890s London with fictional and real-life characters (Henry Irving, Ellen Terry and Bram Stoker), set in theatre-land and in a seedy underworld of pornographic photography, with a side-trip into spiritualism. An interesting look at 19th century London. Highly recommend.

I'm enjoying allowing a random number generator to pick my books for me. It's also encouraging me to read faster than usual.
