Publisher's Summary

Sherlock Holmes is an unparalleled genius. Warlock Holmes is an idiot. 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 companion. 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.

Sherlock Holmes will never be the same

What did you like most about Warlock Holmes: The Hell-Hound of the Baskervilles?

The geriatric Hell-Hound, the literal-minded demons, the usual shenanigans, the somewhat dim Holmes and as always; Watsons comments. And of course, the landlady.

What other book might you compare Warlock Holmes: The Hell-Hound of the Baskervilles to, and why?

Sherlock Holmes, but with demons and a fairly dim-witted Holmes. This is clearly a spoof on Sherlock Holmes, but a lot more entertaining.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Any scene with Watson annoyed. Also trying to figure out which Sherlock Holmes story is being mangled (with added demons)

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

If you have to, make an anime. A "normal" film can't do this justice.

Any additional comments?

And waiting for the next installment...

The wackiness continues

Though I respect some of the haters who dislike this book or expect it to just be another Sherlock Homes mystery novel, the truth is that even if it wasn't a parody of Sir Arthur Doyle's work I probably would have bought it anyway.
I just wish the Author wrote more or that I could find something similar to this. It is very rare to find something that is enjoyable as this, that has a good plot, a good character selection, and can make me laugh.
