YELLOW FAÇADE by Christer Van


Yellow Façade by Christer Van is a steamfunk mash-up of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s short story, The Yellow Face.

Yes, steamfunk, not steampunk. If you want to know the difference there’s a great essay inside called Steamfunk Cha Cha Cha. Essentially steamfunk tells a story from the point of view of a person of colour, so as well as the traditional Watson narrative we are introduced to the adventures of a black lawyer during the years of the underground railroad in America’s deep south. Think Sherlock Holmes meets Django Unchained.

Besides Yellow Façade, a back-up story involving Professor Moriarty will appear (Christer is fiendishly struggling to complete this), along with the aforementioned steamfunk essay, another of those fiendish crosswords and the latest instalment of The Baker Street Broadcast.

No cover yet, but the art will be by Darrel Bevan.
