From Christopher Fowler’s blog, fiction and Mornington Crescent.
Personally, I developed a weird affection for the Mornington Crescent thing, it was, apparently a game played on some show which turned it into a reductive allusion.
Since I read a few “peculiar crimes” books, maybe that was where my fascination stemmed from.
