Very Good General Guide to Literary London
There are many guides to literary London on the market. This one claims to treat the subject from Chaucer to J. K. Rowling, and it does just that, but in a very superficial manner. The guide is particularly strong in its treatment of Victorian London---Dickens and Conan Doyle are thoroughly handled. As a great fan of Wodehouse I was pleased to learn where the Drones Club might be located. The major problem with this guide is that it lacks an appendix so one is unable to locate individual sites. Of special delight is the section on the ancient walls of the City, still evident in the names of streets ending in -gate, as well as the site of the Marshalsea Debtor's Prison.
