La quatrième de couverture

All is not what it seems...
In the murky London gloom, a knife-wielding gentleman named Jack prowls the midnight streets with his faithful watchdog Snuff - gathering together the grisly ingredients they will need for an upcoming ancient and unearthly rite. For soon after the death of the moon, black magic will summon the Elder Gods back into the world. And all manners of Players, both human and undead, are preparing to participate.

Some have come to open the gates. Some have come to slam them shut. And now the dread night approaches - so let the Game begin.

Ce qu'ils en disent

``Zelazny in excellent form... It's not often you read a book that forces you to root for Jack the Ripper to save the universe, but Roger Zelazny is not your typical author... Macabre artist extraordinaire Gahan Wilson's drawings pack a potent punch.''
- South Bend Tribune

``THOROUGHLY ENTERTAINING''
- Weird Tales

``Sparkling, witty, delightful. Zelazny's best for ages, perhaps his best ever''
- Kirkus Reviews
