Written in the classic manner of the great Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Simon Clark presents six occult tales that plunge Sherlock Holmes and Doctor John Watson into a series of adventures that are as mysterious as they are deadly.

Simon Clark has been writing Holmes stories for over twenty years, and has also edited two anthologies, The Mammoth Book of Sherlock Holmes Abroad and Sherlock Holmes’ School for Detection for Robinson.

This substantial collection, of more than eighty thousand words, features several novella length tales that venture into the eeriest of territories and the strangest of encounters, including:

  • Holmes’ forensic examination of ancient Egyptian mummies that are not what they first seem… nor do they remain as motionless as the dead should be.
  • Holmes and Watson descend into ocean depths in a diving bell, hunting for the source of an uncanny voice that haunts all that hear it.
  • The great detective goes in search of an old friend through a grim landscape of trenches, barbed wire and shell craters in a world scarred by war.
  • A man implores Holmes to save his daughter who might well be the victim of a terrible curse invoked by a pagan god from the bloody age of the Vikings.

"Holmes went to stand at the black coffin, although I should employ the correct term ‘sarcophagus’—this one profusely covered with etchings of those mysterious hieroglyphs and, almost covering one side, a large eye of Horus, that ancient symbol of magical protection composed of flowing lines. “Watson, if you please…” My friend spoke in vigorous tones. “Would you be so good as to hand me the scalpel? I wish to see what lies beneath this gentleman’s face."

All the stories are new and original to this collection with the exception of ‘Sherlock Holmes & the Diving Bell’, which was first published in Gaslight Arcanum: Uncanny Tales of Sherlock Holmes, edited by J.R Campbell and Charles Prepolec, EDGE Science Fiction and Fantasy Publishing, 2011.

Includes multiple black & white interior illustrations by M. Wayne Miller!
