In May, Titan Books are due to published the second novel in the Warlock Holmes series, THE HELL-HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES. Written by G.S. Denning, here’s the synopsis…

The game’s afoot once more as Holmes and Watson face off against Moriarty’s gang, the Pinkertons, flesh-eating horses, a parliament of imps, boredom, Surrey, a disappointing butler demon, a succubus, a wicked lord, an overly-Canadian lord, a tricycle-fight to the death and the dreaded Pumpcrow. Oh, and a hell hound, one assumes.

Titan also published the first in the series, A STUDY IN BRIMSTONE.


Here are some of the reviews Denning’s debut received…

‘Douglas Adams meets Arthur Conan Doyle in this delightfully absurd collection of six cases… hilarious.’Publishers Weekly

‘The characters are so likable that they can pause their absurd antics to contemplate prejudice and privilege without missing a beat or falling out of their outrageous world. Denning has a knack for smooth writing that carries the action along and a keen sense for how to set up a joke. He imagines his world with gusto, lavishing the reader with hilarious details like Holmes’ accordion playing and a gang of Baker Street Irregulars made up of horrifying were-rats… Funny, clever, and entertaining.’Kirkus

‘Clever and funny supernatural silliness. Dennings has twisted and warped Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s world, to make it strange and sinisterly magical, and yet he’s somehow managed to preserve the core charm of the original stories… If you ever wondered how much better Sherlock’s would be if people could hurl hellfire at each other, well this one is for you.’Starburst
