With Archie and Daniel working closely on a number of hush-hush cases for the government, Sir Henry apparently feels the need to vet Daniel as a partner (no doubt based on some not-so-savory tidbits about him shared by Sir Maurice). So when Archie had been summoned for a weekend with his uncle, recently returned from South Africa with his good friend Captain Good, Daniel’s name was conspicuously included on the invitation.

The Terrible Doom That Came to Honeysuckle Cottage by psychomachia
PG Wodehouse - Honeysuckle Cottage/HP Lovecraft - Cthulhu Mythos, slash. Erstwhile victim-to-be Henry Scrivener flees pursuit by an eldritch horror only to find shelter in Honeysuckle Cottage. // LOLOLOLOL. This is wonderful.
He felt strangely peaceful, as if the horrors that had plagued his mind were washed away in a sea of rose petals and scented water. There was a haze in his mind and a sweet lassitude to his limbs that made him sink even further in the sofa cushions. His musings drifted away from ghouls and goblins towards more pleasant things. How nice it would be, he thought, if life could always be like this. No supernatural beasts banging down his doors, but more mundane annoyances like salesmen or in-laws. Yes, a normal life with a lovely, cozy home, a steady and stable income, and a wife making breakfast for him in the morning--
He shook his head at that and he seemed to come out his daze a little. Where had that come from? Indeed, such a thought seemed positively peculiar to him, for Henry had never entertained any thought of the fairer sex in his life. The very idea had always, strangely repulsed him much the same way others are repulsed by slugs crawling across their path or the sight of ichorous tentacles springing from unearthly dimensions to devour the unwary. He shuddered again.

Trista was not exactly thin enough to squeeze through the iron bars of St. Julian’s several-acres-long fence, but she could make herself thin enough.

"Double or nothing," said Webster abruptly.

"How exactly do you mean to double 'everything I had?'" said Ash. He meant it to come out level, but there was a quaver in his voice.

"One more trick," Webster said. "Play, and win or lose you will walk away with your fortune." Ash stared at him. Webster made an impatient gesture. "I don't want or need your money. Or your house. Or your coat and shirt, come to that."

It was an offer of princely generosity. Ash's mouth was dry. "And what would you have from me?" he asked.

Something flared in Webster's cool expression for a moment, like a shark flashing a fin in still waters. "A month," he said.

I will attempt to record this incident rationally. There are researchers in Edinburgh who are making a science of the study of sleep, and perhaps my strange dreams and the things they urge me towards will aid them. I beg that you accord me the same respect as you read this, and do not seek to commit me if my flights of fancy seem too wild. These are research notes, not pages torn from some lovesick girl’s torrid notebook. I am aware that my feelings are improper, perhaps even indecent, but it does not behoove a lady of science to disguise the truth.

When Horace Rumpole first represented Alec Deacon, the latter was a newly minted registrar, up on charges arising out of a misunderstanding in the gentlemen's conveniences at Gloucester Green bus station, Oxford. Now he's Sir Alec Deacon F.R.C.S. and needs Rumpole's help again, this time on a charge of burglary ("No, Rumpole, that's not a spelling mistake in the charge sheet.")

Rumpole's only hope of keeping his client out of gaol depends on finding a Will which may have been lost, stolen, impounded by the Samarkand branch of the KGB -- or simply never written in the first place. Fortunately, Patrick Merrick, his summer pupil, knows a girl who may be able to shed some light on the matter.

Should your journey to or from Aslan’s Country (excellent food and top notch accommodation – see entry for Aslan’s Country above) or the Sweet Sea (delicious but be sure to brush your teeth after partaking to prevent decay!) take you through the Eastern Sea, you will find there are few places in the archipelagos worth the bother of leaving the time stream. No establishments offer notable refreshment, sights, or entertainment. Some of the Islands are very dangerous whilst offering no commensurate excitement and are best avoided entirely. (See entries for Dark Island, Lone Islands, Deathwater below). As for Coriakin’s Island, do not be lulled by the prospect of the pleasant greenery, homely house, and fine, sandy and pristine beaches. The magician who lives there is a cantankerous coot with a habit of giving uninvited guests extra appendages or turning them into a squid. AVOID.
