    How to describe this anthology? First, if you are new to the world of Peter Grant and the Rivers of London series I DO NOT recommend reading this to see if you like the premise. This is a mixture of short stories, vignettes and tantalising ideas featuring Peter and some of the minor characters from the novels, some written at the request of the British bookshop Waterstones, others for specific purposes like the London 2012 Olympics (although I believe that may also have been at the request of Waterstones). Some stories I had read before, others were new to me. At the current reduced price of £1.99 I thought it was very good value but I think I would balk at paying the full price for something which is only 227 pages long and includes some material which is already available FOC on Ben's website. Having had my obligatory moan about the price of e-books, if you love the Rivers of London then I think you will enjoy meeting stroppy ghosts, a Christmas spirit, seeing the 'birth' of two rivers, and meeting the original Dedicated Follower of Fashion.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Short stories maybe, but more wanted

    For a series of quality (and Rivers of London fits the 'Bill') the delay between stories is one of increasing tension. These short stories allow us to taste a small morsel of the world we love and avidly wait for the next instalment. These are not just about Peter. They are vignettes into the lives of our other loved characters that Peter's universe has touched.. My advice to readers is to follow through on the cuisine metaphor. Don't gorge. Take time and savour!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Fun addition to the ROl series

    Short stories, many from the Waterstones additions that add extra details into the ROL books.

  • Wonderful Stuff

    So enjoyable, the only thing that makes this four star is that the stories are not long enough. Cannot wait for ytterbium next novel hurry up Ben.

  • Short but potent

    All the smaller than novella-sized ideas, so far, squeezed into a fun-packed single volume. Even the briefest of the Moments provide a space for an idea to form into the telling of a tale. Easily digestible, with the benefit that the introductions help bring back memories.

    Thanks for your feedback!
