Fans of Bram Stoker's Dracula will like this one. In this mashup, a Transylvanian nobleman's death at the hands of Professor Van Helsing is the talk of London.
Mycroft Holmes, certain of Van Helsing's innocence, asks his brother Sherlock to investigate the case and find out what truly led to the deaths of Lucy Westenra and the mysterious aristocrat. Holmes and Watson soon find themselves in danger as they are beckoned to the mountains of Transylvania and the infamous Castle Dracula. In another mashup of Sherlock Holmes and Cthulhu, Holmes and Watson investigate a series of grisly murders that terrorize London. Each crime scene is notable for having no body, only a jumble of human bones along with a bizarre sphere of bones covered in arcane symbols.
Clues point Holmes and Watson to members of a secluded cult who build strange constructs that will enable other-worldly creatures to enter our dimension in search of sustenance. Even Sherlock's foe Moriarty fears his empire is in danger and thus teams up with Holmes to stop this new, common enemy. Denning's take on Holmes, named after Dolye's classic "The Hound of the Baskervilles," is spun as humorous supernatural fantasy. Warlock Holmes is a consulting detective with supernatural abilities, though he often makes knee-slapping mistakes.
In this sequel to last year's A Study in Brimstone , Watson and a partially-decomposed Warlock Holmes go head-to-head against Moriarty's gang, flesh-eating horses, a parliament of imps, a succubus, an overly-Canadian aristocrat, and that most conniving of enemies, the dreaded Pumpcrow.
Did I mention there's also a tricycle-fight to the death? Who Killed Sherlock Holmes? In this entry of Cornell's Shadow Police series, Sherlock Holmes' ghost walks the streets of London, given shape by people's memories of the world's greatest detective. That is, until someone puts a ceremonial dagger through his chest and kills him.

George Mann, who is no stranger to Sherlock Holmes stories, has assembled an excellent anthology follow-up to last year's Associates of Sherlock Holmes. The conceit here is that each of the stories — whose genre ranges from steampunk to horror — are told from the point of view of famous associates of the great detective Sherlock Holmes, including Lestrade, Mrs. They are my brothers. Elias reached across the table and flicked aside two shells with a fingertip.
The map curled into itself. Soon he will embark on the adventure of a lifetime, an expedition past the Strait of Cain and into uncharted waters. Nothing stands in his way…until a long-ago tragedy creeps back into the light, threatening all he holds dear. The people of St. John del Mar have never recovered from the loss of their boy princes, kidnapped eighteen years ago, both presumed dead.
But when two maps surface, each bearing the same hidden riddle, troubling questions arise.
