Has anybody else read the Lord D'Arcy stories?

Yes, I just ran across and read an omnibus last year.  They seem dated (men 
were men, women were women, bad guys had poor sartorial taste, every class 
in its place), but I enjoyed the worldmaking and detective aspects. I even 
like the dated-seeming bits, really. I could envision everything filmed in 
glorious Technicolor.  I remember wondering if DWJ had read them when they 
were originally published and taken the law enforcement of magic users 
concept out to play.

But I'm always wondering what DWJ has read.  I can't be alone in that!

I wonder what sort of things DWJ has read about magic...?
