Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from CrystalBlaze
Considering where you're posting this, I believe I know the killer!

..but I will not say.

I think you carry the ways of these folks very well.

I'm not all that familiar with Poirot, but the way you write him is certainly consistent, although I do believe (or at least hope) you are making fun of his anteater-farming chronicler. (Although I do suspect him to have at least one Crowning Moment of Awesome later on; Gabrielle would make sure of it, as chroniclers and bards have to stick together!)

Thank you! I really must get back to this one soon; I'm a little handicapped by the History Channel documentary on the construction of the Acropolis, which was the inspiration for and primary reference source for the story, having been deleted from my Sky+ box so that I can't refer back to it. I'll have to fall back on web-based sources or pick the brain of my daughter when she comes home from University for Easter.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Recent Donor)DaveTurner
Never been into Perot (or however you spell the bounders name) even so you put it over well enough so that even I can understand it! Well done.

By the way, I think the Vulcan did it, no doubt assisted by the guy in the corset and wig!

If I can find it I'll send you something you might enjoy. It's too long to post here.

All the best,

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from MarcusRowland
That's a pretty good summary of Callisto, I think. Not subtle at all.

Unfortunately, if this is the result we are going to have to encourage others to give you more un-called for shite reviews.
Comments from author:
Anyone who doesn't know the background will probably be somewhat baffled by your comment, but I understand, of course. Thank you!

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from Feyn
You know, as contemptible as the comment that started you writing this work was, I find myself grateful to the idiot that wrote it.

This is amazingly good.
Comments from author:
I had thought of putting a dedication to him/her but I just couldn't bring myself to do it.

Thank you!

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from MarcusRowland
“The brain?” Joxer’s brows furrowed. “But that’s just for cooling the blood, right?”

“In your case,” Poirot said, “that is no doubt correct.”

Definitely! Wonder what Poirot will think of the song...

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Hey, this is awesome.

What's the reference to Hercule having to perform the Twelve Labors? (Must have been a rather convoluted mystery)
Comments from author:
Thank you!

"The Labours of Hercules", Agatha Christie, first published 1947 but copyright 1939 (and it reads as if it is set several years earlier). Poirot is bored with his detective work, plans to retire to grow vegetable marrows, but resolves to solve twelve final cases before his retirement; each chosen for its resemblance to one of the classical Labours of Hercules. They're contrived as hell (the case of the Nemean Lion involves a kidnapped Pekinese dog, for instance) but the parallels are there; Poirot solves them all in traditional Agatha Christie style with plenty of use of the little grey cells.
