    The House of Rumour PDF ò The House MOBI :Ø house kindle, rumour free, The House download, The House of Rumour PDFThis one’s a bit of a surprise a non genre author better known for his tales of homosexuals contemporary gangsters and seventies pop culture a Brit who gave rise to the term ‘geezer chic’ turns in an ambitious piece of genre fiction that cleverly blends facts with fiction Result an occasionally brilliant novelFrom the outset it’s a combination of disparate ideas that really shouldn’t work together Golden Age pulp SF writers James Bond author Ian Fleming German deputy Nazi Rudolf Hess the British government of 1941 UFO’s the Space Race Tarot Cards and Satanism is not a combination you would normally think of Indeed it rather seems like some sort of manic miscellanyDespite this the tale is literate engaging and most importantly just the right side of plausibility The book’s tale is begun with a narrative from Larry Zagorsky an fictional SF writer of the 1940’s an

    The House of Rumour PDF ò The House MOBI :Ø house kindle, rumour free, The House download, The House of Rumour PDFThis has the potential to be a really great book but just warbles on too much It's a fine idea about how much of 20th Century history was tied in with the occult and how those in power use 'magic' for their own ends Unfortunately it goes off on way too many tangents for me
