The Lavender Men Front

Paperback: 118 pages (24 Jun. 2015)
ISBN-10: 1909573205
ISBN-13: 978-1909573208

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).

RAUS! UNTOTEN! (Volume 1)

Raus Untoten FrontRaus Untoten back cover

Fringeworks are pleased to announce the backdoor launch of our latest anthology, Raus! Untoten! at the Black Library Weekender II at the Nottingham Belfry on Sunday 3rd November, 2013.

The anthology’s infectiously enthusiastic editor Matthew Sylvester has blogged about his experiences here, and has this to say about the anthology, which forms the first in a series of similarly themes books:

Raus! Untoten! is a truly unique collection of stories. The Nazi Zombie trope, genre even, has become firmly entrenched in the public’s mind. Films and books have saturated the market to the extent that Nazis are synonymous with Zombies. Vampires have also come to the fore in recent years and have, to the stunned horror of horror fans, become sexy in a faintly necrophiliac manner. But Zombies and Vampires are just two of a myriad of undead horrors waiting to come lunging out of the shadows to slash out throats, suck our eyes from their sockets and scoop our warm brains into their gaping, fang-lined maws. Raus! Untoten! addresses this imbalance. Naturally we have zombies, but we also have vampires, French grey puppets, Jewish golems and even vengeful spirits. So, make yourself comfortable, pour yourself a glass of your favourite tipple and let yourself be taken away to worlds of horror.”
