Victorian Age Vampire was one of the biggest missed opportunities in the entire run of Vampire: the Masquerade. The books were poorly researched, badly written, had little to say, and were created on the vaguest idea of what the Victorian era was actually like. The ladles of misogyny heaped over the setting didn't help either.

Still, London by Night was only the third worst city book published in the game, so it could have been worse.
