Waiting On Wednesday: Servants Of Hell by Paul Kane

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Servants Of Hell by Paul Kane
Expected publication: July 2016 by Solaris 

The world’s greatest detective crashes into Clive Barker’s infamous realm of horror in the crossover event of 2016

Late 1895, and Sherlock Holmes and his faithful companion Dr John Watson are called upon to investigate a missing persons case. On the face of it, this seems like a mystery that Holmes might relish – as the person in question vanished from a locked room – and something to occupy him other than testing the limits of his mind and body.

But this is just the start of an investigation that will draw the pair into contact with a shadowy organisation talked about in whispers and known only as ‘The Order of the Gash’. As more and more people go missing in a similar fashion, the clues point to a sinister asylum in France and to the underworld of London. However, it is an altogether different underworld that Holmes will soon discover – as he finds himself face to face not only with those followers who do the Order’s bidding on Earth, but those who serve it in Hell: the Cenobites...

The press release for this just landed in my inbox yesterday, and even though it's almost a year away I couldn't resist sharing. Not only is Paul a published author (of over fifty books) with the literary chops to pull it off, but he's considered a leading authority on the Hellraiser mythos. Coming on the heels of last week's WOW with Barbie Wilde, it's shaping up to be a very good season in Hell!
