Brace yourselves, book fiends, for today sees a pair Solaris titles released into the world.
First up is Sherlock Holmes and the Servants of Hell, Paul Kane’s crossover par excellence which pits the great detective against Clive Barker’s Hellraising Cenobites… in hell, no less!
Paul has really knocked it out of th epark with this one – Beauty in Ruins called it ‘epic‘, SciFi Bulletin said ‘Sherlock Holmes and the Servants of Hell is a gem of a book that fits well into both Holmes and Hellraiser canon,’ and The Eloquent Page said ‘It is unquestionably the best genre mashup I’ve read in ages.’ Not bad, eh? Seek it out!
Next up is Drowned Worlds, Jonathan Strahan’s superb new anthology that explores the next age of the earth, when the waves take over the land and humanity has to get its collective water wings on.
Starring the likes of Kim Stanley Robinson, Ken Liu, Paul McAuley, Kathleen Ann Goonan, Charlie Jane Anders, Lavie Tidhar and many more, Drowned Worlds is an absolutely smashing collection.
And no less than The New York Times called Drowned Worlds ‘a journey from science into the unknown… haunting, heady stuff.’
