Airship 27 has made the electronic editions of all eight volumes of Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective available in one handy volume, via Amazon.com. I contributed stories to Volumes 2 (“The Affair of the Wretched Flesh”) and 3 (“The Singular Affair of the Sultan’s Tiger”), both of which were great fun to write. I hope to work on more Sherlock Holmes stories in the future.

The kind folks at Meteor House have just announced that my novella, Phileas Fogg and the War of Shadows, is now available in an electronic edition, for both Kindle and the Nook. So if you missed out on either the hardback or the trade version, why not grab a copy today? And be sure to check out all of the other great Meteor House titles, now available as ebooks, including Airship Hunters, by Jim Beard and Duane Spurlock, and The Scarlet Jaguar, by Win Scott Eckert. I can personally recommend both of those, by the way. I’ve read them both, and enjoyed them immensely.
Oh, and remember…Phileas Fogg and the Heart of Osra is now available for preorder. If you enjoyed War of Shadows, you probably don’t want to miss this one. It’s got spies, secret conspiracies, Wold Newton-ry and the requisite (albeit subtle) Lovecraft references.
