Cover Reveal: Sherlock Holmes and the Three Winter Terrors

Sherlock Holmes and the Three Winter Terrors (out October 2021) is a novel told in three parts. Here’s the publisher’s blurb:

1889. The First Terror.
At a boys’ prep school in the Kent marshes, a pupil is found drowned in a pond. Could this be the fulfilment of a witch’s curse from four hundred years earlier?

1890. The Second Terror.
A wealthy man dies of a heart attack at his London townhouse. Was he really frightened to death by ghosts?

1894. The Third Terror.
A body is discovered at a Surrey country manor, hideously ravaged. Is the culprit a cannibal, as the evidence suggests?

These three linked crimes test Sherlock Holmes’s deductive powers, and his scepticism about the supernatural, to the limit.

And here’s that cover image:


It’s another bang-up job from designer Julia Lloyd, which manages to incorporate elements from each of the sections into a seamless whole.

Squaregroot Podcast

I’ve just recorded a podcast with James and Sam at Squaregroot. They are lovely gents and it was an enjoyable and wide-ranging discussion, focusing largely on my Firefly tie-in novels but also on my Sherlock Holmes books and the Cthulhu Casebooks.

Out — at long last! — in audio format: The Age of Ra. Published by W.F. Howes and available via Amazon, Audible, and (as well as other outlets, I’m sure), the book is read excellently by Andy Cresswell.

The next three Pantheon novels (Zeus, Odin, Aztec) will be released on audio over the coming months, so keep an eye out for them.
