New series (and longtime Doctor Who fiction) writer Mark Gatiss has penned "The Vesuvius Club," a novel due out in November in hardcover from Simon & Schuster. Says the promo: "The League of Gentlemen writer/actor with an oddball comedy about Lucifer Box, Edwardian portrait painter, dandy, serial seducer and secret agent, who frequents London's seedy underworld. The cover - emulating Strand magazine - is terrific, and this is to be the first of many Lucifer Box adventures." Apparently, the promotion for the book will include hand-outs of sample chapters on London railway stations!
