YELLOW FAÇADE by Christer Van

ANTICIPATED RELEASE DATE: OCTOBER 2015

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.

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.
