Just a quick post to share the news that two stories of mine are out in two volumes edited by John Linwood Grant for Belanger Books.
The haunting of Fox Lanes is one of the 18 stories in The Book of Carnacki the Ghost Finder, a collection of Carnacki apocrypha.
And in the third volume of the (at the moment) four-volume series Sherlock Holmes & the Occult Detectives, I bring back occult detective and adventuress miss Valerie Trelawney (as seen in The case of the Manchester Mummies) for a second outing in The adventure of the Stealer of Souls. Who would have imagined that a character I invented when I was in high school would appear in two stories published internationally forty years later!
Incidentally, thanks to Belanger Books, I have so far written stories about Holmes, Carnacki and colonel Sebastian Moran. Not bad, if I do say so myself.
Just a quick one to let you know I’ve just got my author copies of the two-volume set of Sherlock Holmes & the Occult Detectives, the massive anthology edited by John Linwood Grant, and they are beautiful books.
In other news: I need a new webcam (this one sucks).
In these stories, Holmes must work with some colleagues of his that are better versed in the ins and outs of the occult and the supernatural, while not relinquishing his powers of observation and deduction.
The first volume includes my story The Case of the Manchester Mummies, the first outing of the delectable miss Valerie Trelawney. More adventures of miss Trelawney will hopefully see the light in the future. But it all starts here.
I hope you’ll check out these books – they are absolutely fabulous.
