The Beginning Is the End Is the Beginning by Sophia Prester

'Unlike other dignitaries he had met in London Below, the Ringmistress was not given to layers of velvet and lace. Rather, she could have stepped straight out of Swinging London, right down to the yellow-and-black checkered shift dress and white patent go go boots.' The various strands in this novella-length sequel don't always bind together, but the individual pieces are engaging, and the inventive OC alone is worth the price of admission

Headstone by Oneiriad

'It rises impossible huge, the sloth, dwarfing the mountain and the statue at its top, the whole city in its shadow -- at least, that's one way of interpreting the twisting lines and wavy patterns of the panel. It might simply be that the artist had a unique take on the concept of perspective.' Hunter's life in glimpses, fabulous & disorienting as all good Neverwhere tales should be. The frame story is particularly enjoyable
