I think you read a comedy noir parody/pastiche set on the mean streets of Aberystwyth that the author used to exorcise his demons about school games lessons...

The was a lot of school-boyishness in this. Especially at the end.

Exactly.

I'm hoping to put a review together tonight after work.

Excellent - I'm looking forward to it. Up until now you've had me ready to give this one a go, but I think I'll wait to hear more about it now. :)

Hm,... I'm not sure. There were too many loose ends for me to really recommend it. And the fun elements weren't really explored at all.

The cover looks like one of those old SFF pulp novels, without the alien, the spaceship or the wizard/knight (possibly - there is a guy with a "robe" and weapon)... the sorceress/witch/princess (funky hat!) is there.
That's "traditional" Welsh dress given a femme fatale make-over.
