    This is scary stuff. You'll never look at unicorns and little girls the same way again. An excellent addition to the Laundry series, but you
    can read this easily even if you don't know the first thing about Bob's world. The memos provide much-needed black humor.

    I'm not a horror fan, but this is a great story. Just maybe don't read it alone in the dark.

    Equoid: A Laundry novella

    I love Charles Stross' writing in general, and his "Laundry Files" series specifically. While I'm disappointed that it wasn't a full novel, I'm thrilled to read about Bob Howard again. This book definitely did NOT disappoint. Stross writes some of the most original, and bizarre stuff, whether it's serious, or humorous. I anxiously await anything new, in whatever genre Mr. Stross is working.

    I used to love unicorn chasers.

    And now I shiver at the very thought.

    Any one who loves Lovecraftian works is going to love Stross' Laundry universe, equal parts James Bond, Catch-22, and oh-my-god-what-is-seen-cannot-be-unseen.

    Civil servant and computational demonologist Bob Howard is called upon to look in on a mysterious case of lots and lots of meat being delivered to a blue-blooded horse farm, a situation that has a mysterious link to none other than H. P. Lovecraft himself.

    Eldritch and unholy hijinks ensue.

    For those who are already acquainted with Bob and Co., _Equiod_ will not disappoint, it fluidly links with the rest of the Laundry works and adds depth besides; for first-time readers it's sure to hook and not let go.

    Five stars for well-written fun.

    The first three-fourths of this work were, for me, difficult to follow making it hard to even become interested until the last one-forth; but I also find H.P. Lovecraft tedious and unfulfilling. That being said, I do consider the ideas presented, very creative and those who can tolerate this writing style will find gold here.

    Excellent addition to the Laundry canon, and should be a good place to start for anyone new to the series. As always Stross manages to combine humour and horror into a fast-moving, fun, yet dark read that you'll really want to not put down.
