I had a complete blast reading Mike Resnick’s Stalking the Unicorn.

It was smart, highly inventive, outrageously funny — led by hilariously wry dialogue — and fun. It was also immensely rewarding, especially getting to see how John Justin Mallory ended up in the other Manhattan, how he became partners with Winnifred Carruthers, his first meeting with the cat-girl Felina and Grundy — “the most powerful demon in New York” — and the clever manner in which he solved the case.

Stalking the Unicorn is a true classic, the kind that will stand the test of time and be just as much fun to read now or twenty years in the future, as it was when the book was first published in 1987.

  1. My enthusiasm fails to match yours. It was a decent enough UF, but I thought it quite slow in spots. There were a couple of funny spots, but it was just downright weird in others. The second book was a DNF for me.
