Sherlock Holmes and the Miskatonic Monstrosities

1 Mins read

James Lovegrove’s literary crossbreed – half Sherlock Holmes, half otherworldly horror – is tremendous fun. Following the events of the first book, The Shadwell Shadows, Holmes and Watson have been inducted into Mycroft’s Dagon Club – its purpose to protect London’s population from the mind-altering terrors trying to claw their way into our reality.

Their latest adventure, a clever play on The Sign of the Four, involves mind transfer, a trip up the Miskatonic River into Indian country, and battling New England Academics. It’s a crazy book, but Lovegrove has the chutzpah and just enough panache to pull it off. You can read our full review here.
