SHERLOCK HOLMES VS. CTHULHU: THE ADVENTURE OF THE DEADLY DIMENSIONS 

NEW REVIEWS!

“You would think that no-one could recreate Holmes a century later than Conan Doyle did, but Gresh has managed to get both Holmes and his ‘assistant’ Watson pegged…In this well-written novel Gresh closely follows the Holmes conventions, whilst stepping outside of the day to day and entering the fringes of the supernatural… a fast moving and strange book.”
Breakaway Reviewers

An unmissable collision of two of the finest Victorian treasures. No stranger to the Cthulhu mythos, Gresh’s Lovecraftian writings have appeared in many anthologies, so the subject matter is in safe hands, leaving the addition of Doyle’s master detective the icing on an already appetising cake.”
This is Horror, http://www.thisishorror.co.uk

“Gresh is an excellent plotter as she weaves an engaging mystery that builds from typical Holmesian fare into pure Lovecraftian horror. Along the way, Gresh raids the toybox of both Doyle and Lovecraft and employs both of their tropes and commonly found story elements, so fans of both authors’ styles will find much to love about this novel. A rollicking read…genuinely great rendering of both Holmes and Watson, in particular the latter. The good news is that this is only the first of a planned trilogy, so we can look forward to even more ‘Cthulhu meets Conan Doyle’ goodness in future.”

THE ADVENTURE OF THE DEADLY DIMENSIONS is a wild, exciting and thoroughly satisfying collision of otherworldly horror and deductive reasoning. So much fun!”
–Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of V-WARS and PREDATOR ONE

“An irresistible eldritch mystery! Baker Street and the Great Old Ones are made for each other.”
–Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of Snowblind and Aarat

THE ADVENTURE OF THE DEADLY DIMENSIONS held me spellbound and kept me guessing…until 3 AM on a work day! The Great Detective has met his literary match, and ‘The Woman’ is author Lois H. Gresh. More!”
–Nancy Holder, New York Times bestselling author, the WICKED Saga

“The Great Detective confronts the Unnameable in Lois Gresh’s latest—grand fun!”
–Leslie Klinger, World Fantasy Award winning editor of The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes and The Annotated H.P. Lovecraft

“The name Lois H. Gresh is as much advertising as her work needs. However, it is my privilege to recommend her latest tour-de-force. Just how the literary establishment missed engineering a dream collaboration between H.P Lovecraft and Arthur Conan Doyle before now is a mystery; but if it was waiting for Lois H. Gresh to do the thing justice, this one is all the justification necessary.”
–Loren D. Estleman, Edgar Award-Winning author

“Lois H, Gresh blends Sherlock Holmes and and the eldritch flavors of H.P. Lovecraft together brilliantly. Victorian nightmares and a properly twisted mystery make THE ADVENTURE OF THE DEADLY DIMENSIONS a must read for fans of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary sleuth.”
–James A. Moore, author of Seven Forges and The Blasted Lands

SHERLOCK HOLMES – THE ADVENTURE OF THE NEURAL PSYCHOSES

While Titan Books prepares SHERLOCK HOLMES VS. CTHULHU: THE ADVENTURE OF THE DEADLY DIMENSIONS for July 11, 2017 publication, I’m putting the finishing touches on the second novel in the series, THE ADVENTURE OF THE NEURAL PSYCHOSES.

As soon as I finish editing and polishing the second novel, I’ll write a couple of short stories, then turn my attention to the third novel in the SHERLOCK HOLMES series.

It’ll be interesting to see the book cover for the second novel. Titan revised my book cover at the last minute to what you see on this page. Notice (this is a teaser) the machine, the eye, the magnifying lens, and the tentacles.

SHERLOCK HOLMES VS. CTHULHU: THE ADVENTURE OF THE DEADLY DIMENSIONS will be available on JULY 11, 2017.

FIRST in a new series of Sherlock Holmes thrillers! 

All novels will be available at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble online and book stores, as well as other fine shops

A series of grisly murders rocks London. At each location, only a jumble of bones remains, along with a bizarre bone sphere covered in arcane symbols. The son of the latest victim seeks the help of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson, who discover a common thread that ties together the murders–and the persons responsible.

Bizarre geometries–based on ancient schematics–point to members of a secluded cult. These men and women build strange constructs that will enable other-worldly creatures to enter our dimension, seeking sustenance. As their power grows, even Moriarty fears that his empire is at risk—to the point that he seeks an unholy alliance with his eternal foe.

DragonCon 2016

DragonCon remains one of my favorite cons of the year. I was on 6 panels this year, but don’t ask me to remember the titles. : ) Along with panels (and I need to do more next year), fun at DragonCon means hanging out at the Westin Writers’ BarCon, as my editor Steve Saffel coins it. There I met a lot of really wonderful people and enjoyed great conversations. Where else can I talk about Dungeons & Dragons with The Hulk? 

I didn’t take as many photos this year as I usually do, but here are a few to give you a slight feel for the experience of DragonCon 2016.

I took this photo of the audience from my Asylums panel.

I especially liked this costume. It has a Cthulhu-like feel to it.

A memorable costume – one of hundreds.

Early Friday evening before the crowds swelled. Saturday night was INSANE!
