The Martian Simulacra

The Martian Simulacra is out now from NewCon Press.

When the Martian Ambassador beats a path to 221B Baker Street, seeking the great detective’s help in solving a grisly murder, how can Sherlock Holmes refuse?

The case will involve a trip to the Red Planet, which few humans have been privileged enough to visit. Ever since the second wave of Martians arrived on Earth, inoculated against the germs that halted them the first time around, and humanity accepted the aliens as their overlords, Sherlock Holmes has been curious… Soon he and Watson are boarding one the the great Martian spaceships, where they discover that their old friend Professor Challenger is also en route to Mars. What awaits them at their destination is a plot more dastardly than any of them could have imagined.

The Martian Simulacra is a glorious mash-up of Sherlock Holmes and The War of the Worlds, seasoned with a dash of Conan Doyle’s The Lost World for good measure.

    Just finished reading “TMS” and thoroughly enjoyed it! Was this a “one shot” scenario or will you be following it up as the story continues to unfold?

    • Hi Harry,

      Many thanks for this, and I’m delighted you enjoyed TMS. Much appreciated. I hope to continue the story. Indeed, my outline of Sherlock Holmes and the Martian Menace, is with a publisher at the moment. It will comprise two further novellas, continuing the story begun in TMS. I just hope the publisher likes the idea. Fingers crossed!

      All the best, Eric.
