Warlock Holmes - A Study in Brimstone

Warlock Holmes - A Study in Brimstone - G.S. Denning (3.5 stars)
Parody of Sherlock Holmes, the blurb makes you think it will be in a laugh out loud humorous style.

It's done well enough, the author should consider whether he's going for a humorous or a fantasy twist. There are some good touches of both but they never quite gel together.

Doctor Watson proves to be the brains in this operation, but Warlock has his own abilities. The stories are told in a suitably Doyle style, although some Americanisms slip in to the dialogue.

All the expected characters are there, and the author does a good job moulding them to this version of Holmes.
