Inhaltsangabe: Edgar Wallace's famous-though inconspicuous detective
This is the first volume of the complete collected stories featuring Mr. J G Reeder of the Department of Public Prosecutions. Edgar Wallace's sleuth-whose territory is the London of the 1920s-is an unlikely figure, more bank clerk than detective in appearance, ever wearing his square topped bowler, frock coat, cravat and muffler, Mr Reeder is usually inseparable from his umbrella. With his thin mournful face many might mistake him for an undertaker, but appearances can be deceiving. It is the mind of Mr J G Reeder that his greatest asset and that which the criminal fraternity have most to fear. Although-on occasions-he is not averse to substituting his umbrella for a long barrelled automatic pistol when the situation demands it! In this first volume you will find Room 13, The Mind of Mr J. G. Reeder and Terror Keep-a veritable feast for detective fiction enthusiasts.
MR.J's relentlessly razor sharp and remarkably rapid fire humor create the sparks that could set the entire sky on fire with wickedly wonderful wordplay. --hamptonroads10.cityspur.com/2010/12/12/2011-years-best-breakthrough-author-award/
dry wit, and tend to split words (rather than hairs) you will find this collection delightful. Okay, to put it plainly - I was laughing like amaniac --gemmariceandauthorpoppet.com/4/post/2011/05/amphigory-almanac-book-review.html

From the Author
MR.J BIO:Meet Mr. J, a mouth-breathing-barbaric-lousy-writer so self involved that he failed Astronomy 101 because he literally thought the world revolved around him. Someone once stole his identity but it was quickly returned . . . along with several others to choose from. Mr. J is writing a new book or as he called it "an Amish blog". It will probably have more unread pages than crack dealer's beeper during the 80's.
From the Inside Flap
"For his first book, Jones "trott[ed] the uncharted blue marble spinning in the abyss of star sprinkled doubt orbiting the galaxy of inevitable failure, frustration,and disappointment. I had no Rosetta stone, nocompass, no archetypal template or formula toguide me. I was lost but kept moving forwardat a steadfast and unwavering pace. I was likeLewis or Clark exploring the ragged edges of theuniverse."M&C NEWS

About the Author
Finally a voice for an unspoken generation speaks with acerbic wit and ear tickling vernacular that rings true. Parenthetically, 236 typos (i.e. errors of grammar, syntax, semantics, linguistics, etc) have been intentionally left, not to exasperate a maladroit writing skill, but to accent how frivolous and moot rules can be in creative writing. It's a "Where's Waldo" of Errors making it interactive for the grammar gurus' scrutiny.
Sometimes the stream of consciousness may seem scatterbrained and unfocused, but this was not done adventitiously. Each word was diligently and rigorously labored over. The steadfast and unwavering pace of self deprecating and self disparaging levity reminds the reader that the mission of the book is to be jocular and jovial at its own faults, follies, and foibles.
