This anthology presents original Sherlock Holmes stories with all the elements of the classics, but in a steampunk setting. Think futuristic inventions, grinding gears, puffs of steam, rebellious robots and astute automatons.
It consists of two volumes: Tales of a Retro Future and Mechanical Men and Otherworldly Endeavours. The Adventure of the Purloined Piston Valve, a story by L.S. Reinholt and me, is part of Mechanical Men and Otherworldly Endeavours.
The Kickstarter (February-March 2019) was very successful. Part of the campaign was an interview with L.S. Reinholt and me, where we talk about our story and our process writing together while living in Denmark and Belgium respectively.
The World’s Greatest Detective in the Retro Futuristic Realms of Steampunk!
Imagine a slight change to our historical timeline where the Industrial Revolution heated up much quicker than expected. Technological marvels such as airships, trains, battleships, and submarines came into being much earlier. They were followed by steam-powered wonders such as mechanical men, flying ships, and even crafts capable of reaching the deepest fathoms of the sea or traveling to distant celestial orbs.
That is the world where Sherlock Holmes and his Boswell, Dr. Watson, find themselves in Sherlock Holmes: Adventures in the Realms of Steampunk.
Mechanical Men and Otherworldly Endeavours – Volume two of the anthology features stories with a focus on robotic creatures and otherworldly adventures. See Holmes team up with intelligent animals from an alternate Earth, switch bodies with Dr. Watson, and travel to another dimension.
