Dr. E. Eszterhazy is a very Sherlock Holmes type character...extremely knowledgable (he holds multiple doctorates) and often called upon to explain the unexplainable.
Unlike Holmes, Dr. E. lives in the Triple Monarchy of Scythia-Pannonia-Transbalkania and often encounters *real* magic (rather than the trickery that Holmes encountered). Also, there is a lot of tongue-in-cheek humor written into these stories. The humor is smart and subtle...not many laugh out loud moments, but a fair number of chuckles.
This is a collection of short stories---and you might want to take them one at a time. In a continuous run, they begin to blur together.
I found Robert Blumenfeld's narration (or perhaps it was Avram Davidson's writing) somewhat soporific. I'm not sure why...it's not like he droned or was boring.
