'' a smoothly underplayed urban fantasy with echoes of H.P. Lovecraft (including a new addition to the Necronomicon library, the prophetic work Megalopolisomancy), has elements of autobiography and of ironic allegory - when the irrational monster finally takes form, it is composed of shredded paper from the books to which the protagonist has given too much of his life, and is dispersed by reciting rationalist names of power including those of Pythagoras, Newton and Einstein'' (David Langford/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).
