Gaslight Grimoire: Fantastic Tales of Sherlock Holmes

Eliminating the impossible just got a whole lot harder!

The fabled tin dispatch box of Dr. John H. Watson opens to reveal eleven all-new tales of mystery and dark fantasy. Sherlock Holmes, master of deductive reasoning, confronts the irrational, the unexpected and the fantastic in the weird worlds of the Gaslight Grimoire.

Praise:

“A wonderful addition to the bookshelf of any fan of Sherlock Holmes or of the supernatural. Terrific stories, great variety, genuine chills: it’s all here.” — Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of HOMINIDS

“This book contains eleven of the most ingenious, imaginative and inspired exploits yet committed to paper. Wonderful stuff!” — Roger Johnson, BSI, Editor, The Sherlock Holmes Journal

“Gaslight Grimoire is a welcome addition to the Holmes "fanon," joining the relatively recent collections of supernatural Holmes stories by other publishers, Shadows Over Baker Street (2003) and The Ghosts in Baker Street (2006).”—Dru Pagliassotti, The Harrow

"This is just a taste of what's in store. I enjoyed every story in the anthology and usually there's one or two that are oh-hum, not here though. This is truly and interesting collection of stories that really do harken back to the original Sherlock Holmes mysteries with a bit of the paranormal thrown into the mix." - SFRevu

"The gems here are the last two stories; "Red Sunset" by Bob Madison and "The Red Planet" by Kim Newman." - Locus Magazine

"[Barbara] Roden effortlessly involves Holmes in a mystery derived from M.R. James's classic tale of terror, "Casting the Runes," featuring psychic sleuth Flaxman Low." - Publisher's Weekly

"Of the eleven tales included, all are worth reading and several will stand up to re-reading." — Philip K. Jones

"The stories in this collection, a broad variety all written by various authors, suit the style and mood of the Victorian detective while adding some elements not found in the original tales. While the Arthur Conan Doyle tales had a rational detective facing real crimes and solving them with logic, he avoided the supernatural as an actual, and not just implied, event. Gaslight Grimoire allows for full immersion into Sherlock Holmes vs the world of the occult and unearthly. Readers who enjoy mystery and dark fantasy will find something to enjoy in this collection." — Ronald Hore, CM Magazine

"There have been several anthologies of such stories, but few, I think, as good as Gaslight Grimoire: Dark Tales of Sherlock Holmes edited by J R Campbell & Charles Prepolec, which contains eleven of the most ingenious, imaginative and inspired exploits yet committed to paper." — Roger Johnson, The District Messenger

"All the authors in Gaslight Grimoire have shown they are fans of Doyle's work, bringing careful details of Holmesian scholarship to their stories. They have also taken new paths, exploring some unusual and intriguing ideas, with the result being imaginative and entertaining. This is a good book for any Holmes fan, but it is also diverting work for those who enjoy the fantastic. " — Colleen R. Cahill, Fast Forward: Contemporary Science Fiction

"I love Barbara Hambly's work as a writer, and this book was worth it just for her story. As a collection it gave me my Holmes fix, and I will definitely read it again. And probably several more times after that. I'd say it was a good, solid B+ or A- level Holmes read." — Winter, Calcutta (Kolkata) News

"One of the things I really enjoyed about the book: the illustrations by Phil Cornell which accompany each story. For many of them, it's not obvious what the illustration means at the beginning of the story, but at the end, you go back and look and say, aha! If only I had interpreted this correctly, I would have seen it coming!" — R. Kelly Wagner, Calcutta (Kolkata) News
