''other sequences of note include The Enquiries of Doctor Eszterhazy (coll of linked stories 1975; exp vt THE ADVENTURES OF DOCTOR ESZTERHAZY 1990), set in a tiny Ruritanian country soon to be swept away in World War 1. Engelbert Eszterhazy, the emperor's wizard, who drives about the cobbled streets of the capital in a steam runabout, is an obvious Vergil figure, although the tales show the high spirits of Davidson's short fiction rather than the grave wonder of the Vergil novels. In the mid-1980s the author returned to this venue with a series of eight longer tales about Eszterhazy in his youth (rather as he had lately done with Vergil). By now his style had changed: his prose became less tight, more discursive and sometimes prolix. The five Cornet Eszterhazy stories are longer than the eight earlier ones, and should be considered as a separate sequence'' (Gregory Feeley/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).
