VALLIS TIMORIS by Mike Chinn and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Vallis Cover Front-1

Paperback: 314 pages (14 July 2015)
ISBN-10: 1909573248
ISBN-13: 978-1909573246

Vallis Timoris is our first mash-up novel based on the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Using 90% of his original text and adding a whole bunch more from the pen of Mike Chinn, we have transformed Doyle’s original novel, The Valley of Fear, into a steampunk adventure that takes Sherlock Holmes to the moon and back.

The Moriarty paradigm is not quite the world that we know. Subtly altered by the machinations of Professor Moriarty, the British Empire dominates the globe using steampunked technology the like of which has never been seen.

Steel Fortresses. Space Cannons. Secret Societies. Sherlock Holmes on the Moon.

In the wake of Lunar Gordon’s conquest of the Moon, Sherlock Holmes must uncover the truth behind the Scowrers of the Vale de Verme in a thrilling pulp adventure in which physics and engineering are every bit as important as the science of deduction.

Hot on the heels of The Scoundrel of Bohemia comes The Lavender Men by Adem Rolfe, the second volume in our continuing series of steampunk adventures. Our first original tale, it is available in both paperback and ebook formats from Amazon.

When Doctor Watson is reunited with Murray, his loyal wartime orderly, he and Sherlock Holmes become embroiled in the affairs of the New East India Company. What exactly is transcendent anatomy? Do dead soldiers really fight for the Crown?

Bodysnatchers. Mad Science. The Walking Dead.

Only by investigating the dark secrets of a Limehouse laboratory can the great detective discover the truth. Elsewhere, Holmes must unravel a case involving killer puppets, a child prodigy, toxic tea and an encounter with the most indomitable woman he may ever cross wits against. Additional content includes a second story, an essay on the Baker Street Irregulars, plus the Baker Street Broadcast (incorporating our very own Sherlockian crossword).
