Sherlock Holmes is an unparalleled genius. Warlock Holmes is an idiot. A good man, perhaps; a font of arcane power, certainly. But he's brilliantly dim. Frankly, he couldn't deduce his way out of a paper bag. The only thing he has really got going for him are the might of a thousand demons and his stalwart companion. Thankfully, Dr. Watson is always there to aid him through the treacherous shoals of Victorian propriety--and save him from a gruesome death every now and again.

The phrase 'number 3 Lauriston Gardens' returns a fond memory for "Sherlock Holmes" fans. It's the location where Sherlock first demonstrates his consulting detective skills for all the world to see. Or at least read about, through Dr. Watson's reporting. And where we first meet detectives Gregson and Lestrade. The same scene occurs in this "Warlock Holmes" parody, but this time Sherlock is, well, a warlock, Gregson is a 7 foot tall ogre, and Lestrade is a vampire. You're thinking a little over the top, eh? You'd be right. I suppose this is a sort of take-off of those Jane Austin parodies about zombies. 'If it worked for Jane Austin, it will work for Conan-Doyle too' must have been the thinking. It doesn't work. I'll grant there's a few funny lines here and there in the first half of the book. The second half of the book -- which begins after the first half's highly derivative "Study in Scarlet " parody ends, the second half doesn't even have that going for it. If you're just in the mood for something silly, the first half of the book is maybe worth some raised eyebrows for a chuckle. Otherwise, not recommended.
