Welcome!

Hello and welcome to www.jameslovegrove.com, the number one internet resource for all things of and pertaining to James Lovegrove. If you are interested in (or curious about) the work and life of this author, look no further.

The blog is updated more or less regularly, giving details of my latest publishing shenanigans, occasional book / movie / music recommendations, and the odd escapade from my own life.

There is a biography, a “compleat” bibliography and a list of published short stories, and you can read extracts from all my published books to-date, including my latest title, Age of Ra.

The contact page will give you direct access to my email and finally, you can see the sort of websites I like to visit from time to time over at the links page.

Fans of quirky and hard-to-classfy fiction, opponents of mainstream blandness, despisers of supermarket twenty-titles-only literary homogenisation, lovers of the left-field and the unpredictable and the contrary and the downright perverse… you’ve come to the right place.

James Lovegrove's latest novel:

Sherlock Holmes: The Stuff Of Nightmares

A spate of bombings has hit London, causing untold damage and loss of life.  Meanwhile a strangely garbed figure has been spied haunting the rooftops and grimy back alleys of the capital.  

Sherlock Holmes believes this strange masked man may hold the key to the attacks.  He moves with the extraordinary agility of a latter-day Spring-Heeled Jack.  He possesses weaponry and armour of unprecedented sophistication.  He is known only by the name of Baron Cauchemar, and he appears to be a scourge of crime and villainy.  But is he all that he seems?  Holmes and his faithful companion Dr Watson are about to embark on one of their strangest and most exhilarating adventures yet.
