Summary

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 stalwart 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.

Performed by Scott McCormick, Eric Messner, Patrick Bussink, David Jourdan, Matthew Keenan, Yasmin Tuazon, Jonathan Feuer, Bradley Smith, David Coyne, Steven Carpenter, Chris Davenport, Dani Stoller, Richard Rohan, Matthew Schleigh, Michael Glenn, Peter Holdway, Eva Wilhelm, Michael John Casey, Lolita Horne, Laura C Harris, Andy Clemence, Colleen Delany, Eleanor Todd, Jillian Levine-Sisson, Ken Jackson, Nanna Ingvarsson, Terence Aselford, Todd Scofield, Rose Elizabeth Supan, Mort Shelby.

Great story, voice acting misses the mark

The voice actors are mocking UK voices and it made very uncomfortable, insulting listening. Why would the director do that? Do US listeners really find that funny? The comedy in the books is perfect, but surely the author can't have intended to parody British voices. I love the books, but i won't listen to any more of these insulting, careless productions.

Every expectation subverted but an authentic feel

Somehow the author has managed to subvert every expectation of every single character in The Holmes mythos and yet still have them occupy the same role that they would in a regular holmes story. I have heard that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle became displeased with his characters after writing them for so long, but I think if he were to see the story it might imbue him with some renewed passion for them.

I admit that the above statement might be arguable but I think it's true enough. G.S. Denning has taken the Holmes lore and turned it on its head weaving a masterful mythos that is equivalent to the writings of Lovecraft, Howard, and Doyle himself.

AMAZING story!

As with all Graphic Audio productions, the quality is worth every penny.

This book is an AMAZING supernatural parody of the traditional Sherlock Holmes stories. It's absolutely hilarious as well, I enjoyed every single minute and will be spending my credits on the other books. The scenes with Lestrade and Grogsson reminded me of Terry Pratchett's Watch series and my favorite part is when the book suddenly turns into a Western to tell the story of a heinous crime committed during the California Gold Rush.
