J. Robert King The RPG King

pun intended – brought back Carnacki the Ghost Hunter and put him the start of his career, in Switzerland.  He then made Professor James Moriarty into a lovable and reasonable person with a genius wife and daughter before they all met Jack the Ripper.

All of this is like holding an RPG in your hands, because Mr. King is a top role-playing game designer of a legion of entertaining and popular games. The fact that he can write a witty horror and sci-fi novel is killer.

The Shadow of Reichenbach Falls

The most humorous sections lie, in part, in Sherlock’s amnesic state.  He takes the name of the tailor on the tag inside his suit coat – Mr. Silence.  Hilarious! – He doesn’t know who he is, but he can still deduce everything else in the universe.

Carnacki is funny as well — His manipulation of the press in order to goad the Paris Ripper is side-splitting. One of Carnacki’s article made me laugh so far loud that I dropped the book.  There’s more and you must find this book and read it if you are looking for something familiar, yet fresh and madcap.

This book is historical fiction, spread thickly to fiction and a rollicking good time. There is a gateway left wide open for a sequel and I hope we get one soon. Cheers!
