"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 stalalwart 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"--Amazon.com.

Denning's take on the Sherlock stories is delightfully silly - a marriage of Victorian mystery with magic and paranormal. The concept is a bit strained at times but it's so much fun that a few flaws are easy to forgive. Most impressive is how well Denning mimics Conan Doyle's writing style: despite the contemporary concept and humor, this reads like a Victorian novel.

The Sherlock Holmes stories set in a world where magic exists. G. S. Denning manages to bring both horror and comedy to this original take on the Holmes canon.
