4.0 Review: Ajax Penumbra 1969
This was a cute little adventure and some backstory into Ajax Penumbra. In this we learn of Penumbra's origins, how he came to be in San Francisco, became a member of a secret book society, and came to own the 24-hour books store. It was an enjoyable short story.

This prequel short to Mr. Penumbra's 24-hour Bookstore flew under my radar until just a couple of months ago.
