Besides the obvious and delightful spy-geek-Chuthluian horror cocktail that Charles Stross shakes together in his
Laundry series, there's a bit of Stargate to it, what with the openings of gates into
otherwhere and heroic types stepping through them. It's been that way since the beginning, when our man from the
Laundry, a geek turned applied demonologist and secret agent, stepped through a hole in space to rescue the damsel
in distress. As has been noted elsewhere, he's an odd sort for a classic secret agent, considering that he
eventually got around to marrying the damsel, Mo... short for Dominique... and doesn't drive a car, let alone
an Aston Martin, alternating between London's tubes and walkways. He should stick to the tube, considering the
trouble he gets into when he wanders off down dark paths by himself.
