''his books feature grotesques and eccentrics viewed with whimsical affection. These people often have crotchets and obsessions, and live in mutable worlds subject to curiosities and wonders whose explications -- while sometimes earnestly scientific -- are seen as hopelessly inadequate in the face of their absolute strangeness. The events of his books fall into odd patterns rather than linear plots, though the later works have a stronger narrative drive. HOMUNCULUS, a kind of prequel to The Digging Leviathan, is set in a Dickensian 19th-century London, and likewise features the spirit of scientific or alchemical inquiry, along with space vehicles, zombies and the possibility of immortality through essence of carp'' (Peter Nicholls/Encyclopedia of SF).
