I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
Sherlock Holmes is an unparalleled genius who uses the gift of deduction and reason to solve the most vexing of crimes.
Warlock Holmes, however, is an idiot. A good man, perhaps; 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 a thousand demons and his stalwart flatmate. 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.
***The Summer of Sherlock 2019***
And now for something completely different. Here is a quick quiz to determine if you might enjoy Warlock Holmes:
Do you have some familiarity with Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective?
Are you partial to accordion music?
Do you believe that Mrs. Hudson could benefit from an interested in pornography?:
Do you feel that Dr. John Watson got the short end of the stick in Doyle’s version?
In your opinion, are there too few ogres and vampires in the original?
Are you a fan of Douglas Adams and/or Terry Pratchett?
If you answered “yes” to at least 2 of these questions, I would suggest that you might be amused by this book. Give it a try.
