Warlock Holmes: A Study in Brimstone

29 Jan

“A Study in Brimstone” by G. S. Denning is less of a Sherlock Holmes parody (regardless of the re-writing of canon stories) and more of an alternate universe.

An extremely weird alternate universe.  One where Gregson is an ogre, Lestrade is a vampire, Mrs Hudson is a malignant dwarf…and Holmes shares his head with Moriarty and talks to demons.

And Watson?  Well, he’s much the same, except he is trying to teach Holmes deduction…and failing.

Funny, fast paced, and a delightful romp from start to finish.

The second book, “The Battle for Baskerville Hall” is due out in May.  I will be getting a copy as soon as I can.

    I just finished this books last week, and I found it delightful. But I wasn’t aware of a second one coming our way, so thank you! I’ll be waiting for it 😀

      My copy was a paperback and at the very back it was advertising the second book. 🙂
