You may be right about Angela Carter being a product of her time. I've not read this one though. I do like her short stories, but I will admit thematically they are very much a product of the late 70's early 80's.

Aha, another Heyer fan! That really gives the flavour of one of my favourites. (I reviewed The Grand Sophy and Venetia on Vulpes Libris, which might amuse you. Now, let's see if the link gets through the spam trap: http://vulpeslibris.wordpress.com/2008/02/15/the-grand-sophy-venetia/ )

And thank you for the Angela Carter mention - I love her, but hadn't come across this one, so that's on the bookshop list. Thank God for the Society of Authors discount at Foyles...

I've been looking for Carter short stories in the library for Short Story Septemeber but no look yet C. B. but thanks for the tip.

Emma - glad you enjoyed my Heyer review, your link worked and I really enjoyed yours too.
