Steampunk Reads: Sherlock Holmes Meets the Supernatural

I’ve been reading a lot lately–each new year brings a new reading challenge. I just finished a fantastic book that I thought I’d share with you all” Jackaby, by William Ritter.


It’s “Sherlock Holmes meets Doctor Who!” Ok, once I read that it was about a millisecond before I picked it up to purchase it.

Without spoiling the novel, it was wildly entertaining and combined everything I love about Sherlock Holmes and detective fiction with what I love about supernatural thrillers. The characters and the world are vibrant, dynamic, and rich.

There are 2 more stories in the series, Beastly Bones and Ghostly Echoes. I can’t wait to dive more into this world and these characters with these next 2 installments. But before I do, I’m cracking open Graham Moore’s The Last Days of Night for my historical fiction book club next month.

So far I’m really enjoying it. It’s about the light bulb, Thomas Edison, George Westinghouse, Nikola Tesla and the legal battle over light!
