Publisher's Summary

Sherlock Holmes is an unparalleled genius. Warlock Holmes is an idiot. A font of arcane power, certainly. But he's brilliantly dim. Frankly, he couldn't deduce his way out of a paper bag. The only thing he has really got going for him are the might of 1,000 demons and his stalwart companion.
Thankfully, Dr. Watson is always there to aid him through the treacherous shoals of Victorian propriety and save him from a gruesome death every now and again.

What the Critics Say

"A must for all those who like their Holmes on the wilder side." (George Mann, author of Sherlock Holmes: The Spirit Box)
"I laughed like a loon." (James Lovegrove, New York Times best-selling author of The Age of Odin)
"With more twists than a Victorian corset, this is Sherlock for the mash-up generation. Tongue-in-cheek, knowing tales, with dollops of Penny Dreadful and a side salad of Atlantis." (William Sutton, author of Lawless and the Devil of Euston Square)

Enjoyable spoof

What did you like most about Warlock Holmes - A Study in Brimstone?

Watson and his slightly sarcastic comments


What was one of the most memorable moments of Warlock Holmes - A Study in Brimstone?

A lot of Watson's observations. Too many to mention


Any additional comments?

Downright silly at times, a little weak in spots. A very silly Holmes and a quite sarcastic Watson.I soon found myself interested in finding out how and what twists had been made to the original stories. The continuation boggles the mind and I am waiting for the next installment. No matter how silly it will get.

If Conan Doyle and HP Lovecraft got drunk and wrote a book.

I initially thought it would be a single story rather than a collection of short stories. Not that I minded, it worked fine.

Don’t really expect anything Holmes like. It is clearly a parody and the supernatural element drops it firmly in Lovecraftian waters at times, which isn’t a bad thing. It is well written though especially the use of Victorian language and the period feel. It is also narrated excellently.

For a bit of light relief this is recommended an enjoyable parody, well written. I have certainly read a lot worse. I will most likely read the next book in the series.
