Praise

“A funny paranormal adaptation of the original Sherlock Holmes mysteries. And when I say funny, I mean I actually laughed out loud on several occasions.” - Newbery and Beyond

“While cast and settings are faithful to the original stories, Denning upends the narrative with a host of paranormal turns that range from the irreverent to the gruesome. Mashup fans will be eagerly awaiting more of this obvious match for fans of Seth Grahame-Smith.” – Booklist

“Damn you, G.S. Denning! Damn you, sir, for tainting the Great Detective with your parodic fripperies and your supernatural folderols!  There is a special place in Holmesian hell reserved for impudent whelps such as yourself – and I shall languish there alongside you for the sin of having read your book and laughed like a loon throughout.” - James Lovegrove, New York Times bestselling author of The Age of Odin


“What if Sherlock Holmes wasn’t a brilliant detective, but an awkward magician with prophetic fits? What if Scotland Yard was staffed by vampires and ogres? And above all, what if it was funny? Warlock Holmes should have you from the title alone, but if it doesn’t, know that it’s full of charm, humor and demons. Lots of demons.” - Robert Brockway, author of The Unnoticeables


“Irreverent, hilarious and a ripping good yarn to boot. A must for all those who like their Holmes on the wilder side.” - George Mann, author of Sherlock Holmes: The Spirit Box


“With more twists than a Victorian corset, this is Sherlock for the mash-up generation. Tongue-in-cheek, knowing tales, with dollops of Penny Dreadful and a side salad of Atlantis.” - William Sutton, author of Lawless and the Devil of Euston Square

“Warlock Holmes: A Study in Brimstone is charming and excellent entertainment! It’s a deliciously entertaining reading experience.” - Rising Shadow

“A good classic read filled with quirky characters, a supernatural touch, and a dash of mysterious murders and peculiar instances.” - Gamers Sphere 

“Adapts classic Sherlock Holmes tales in a way that stays true to the source, but also enjoys itself the whole time” - Hey Poor Player

“The illustrations by Sean Patella-Buckley throughout the novel were epic…If you are looking for a hilarious collection of magical and adventurous mysteries, then this is the novel for you.” - Geek Hard 

“In the age of mash-ups, I found this book to be so much fun and reminded me just why I love reading so much.” - From Girlie to Nerdy

 “Quirky, funny, and clever” - Vivacious Hobo

All in all, I had a wonderful time with this book, and boy am I glad to have the sequel Warlock Holmes: The Hell-Hound of the Baskervilles already on hand because I’m really looking forward to continuing this series. 4.5/5 - Biblio Sanctum 

 “The hijinks feel refreshed and the references renew my interest in reading the originals, which is some of the highest praise I can give to any homage”  The Frumious Consortium

“Denning peppers his hilarious stories with plenty of Holmesian callbacks and Douglas Adams-worthy puns…It’s charming and well-imagined and rewards longtime fans with plenty of great details.” – Barnes & Noble SFF Blog
