I was spoiled by reading Gilbert's " Behrens and Calder" tales before I read this collection of short stories.
These are good, very well written but not as exciting as some of his other writing. The main character in these procedural's is interesting but in my opinion better suited to a full length novel. A couple of these stories have a 'dashed off' feel about them. This is probably too harsh as 90% of short story writers would be envious in regards writing this well.
