Sherlock Meets the Elder Gods in Airships...

I made a vow at Octopodicon to two panels, 'Holmes Steampunk' and 'Cthulhu Steam', that because there is a lack of a novel that melds both milieu of writing - Sherlock Holmes & Lovecraft Mythos, in Steampunk, that I would do it. By next year I will write and publish and see in print by Octopodicon 2, and it will be a 'mash-up' of Steampunk, Sherlock Holmes and Lovecraftian Mythos.

The basic story idea has already filled my mind and it is wondrous. Now I have to write detailed outlines and get it prepared to compose by the new year. It will be faithful to all three genres, I can guarantee it. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is a relation of mine (no lie), on my dad's side and linked to his mother by blood, they were cousins. So I have that heritage already on my side in this project.

I wish I could say more about it, but I would give it away before its time, and that isn't good...


  1. You ever have one of those moments when you read a blog header, and just know you're going to like it? Oh, and if you haven't found it yet, hunt down Gaiman's Holmes/Lovecraft story. it's short but well worth a look.

  2. Thanks and I will have to do that!
