Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Nope! and can't say I will bother, but that type of victorian setting has been done quite a bit.

I enjoyed the original best. I really only gave the original a try because I had read Mark Gatiss' Doctor Who books, and saw him on The League of Gentlemen. The Devil in Amber was okay, but I cannot say that I was fussed with Black Butterfly.

Well, I've read through the first two Flashman books, and intend to start on the third soon, and I have to admit, the first Lucifer Box book was better.
