Notes - The Agents, Strategists & Allied Tradecraft Social Club by A.J. Hall
The metaphysics of this version of the afterlife assume that those passing into the inn do so with the appearance they had at the age they were when they were doing their best undercover work; it does not necessarily bear any relation to the age they were at death.
Those appearing or referred to as being present in the inn, besides the named characters are:
- M (Judi Dench incarnation, Bond films)
- Noor Inayat Khan (real person, SOE)
- Kimball ‘Kim’ O’Hare (Kipling)
- Hazel Wong (Robin Stevens, Wells and Wong Detective Series)
- Lord Peter Wimsey (Dorothy L. Sayers)
- Ming Tai (The Disguiser, TV Series)
- Frances Fitzgibbon (Tomorrow’s Ghost, Anthony Price)
Lin Shu being unconscious throughout the whole of Jingyan’s wedding as a result of a Mickey Finn served him by Lin Chen is book canon. That Consort Jing contrived it is head canon.
