“you have a good dossier there” [LAST]
There were supernatural elements in the original Sherlock Holmes stories. Elements of gothic intrigue like voodoo, a possible vampire, a family curse, and a spectral hound come to mind.
So when Christian Klaver looked at the intersection of his interests in sci-fi, fantasy, Sherlock Holmes, and writing, it was only natural to find some existing and contemporary examples and bring them to life. Thus was born The Classified Dossier of Sherlock Holmes series from Titan Books.
Christian shares stories of these passions with us, bringing us from his childhood inspiration to the Universal monsters, Cthulhu, and more. And we find ourselves back in 1890s London with Oscar Wilde and Conan Doyle for the third entry in the Dossier: Sherlock Holmes and Dorian Gray.
We even got Christian to spill his plans for his next series of books, so you'll want to tune in to hear about that.
And if you are chosen as a winner of this Canonical Couplet quiz, you'll get a copy of Christian's new book!
