In 2015, Airship 27 Productions released “The Amazing Harry Houdini,” a collection four brand new adventures featuring the famous showman. The volume contained stories by Roman Leary, Jim Beard, I.A. Watson and James Palmer. Now, Ian Watson delivers a full length novel sequel to that title with his, “Holmes & Houdini.”

They call themselves the Far Edge Club, a mysterious cabal of rich, sadistic hedonists who live only to create pain and fear in others.   Only one man has ever bested their perverted schemes, the world renowned magician and escape artist, Harry Houdini.   Now London will become the stage for their final confrontation.

The Club has recruited an army of killers in their maddened goal to destroy Houdini. But they are unaware he is not without his own allies.   Joining the fray at the American’s side is none other than the great detective of Baker St, Sherlock Holmes, and his loyal companion, Dr. Watson.   Together these exceptional heroes will battle an insidious evil and attempt to solve the mystery of the Ghost Mask of L’Inconnu.

“We’ve been waiting almost an entire year to get this out,” says Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor Ron Fortier.   “15 copies of a limited edition collectors edition sold out on the first day at this year’s PulpFest in Columbus, Ohio. It sported a variant cover by Art Director Rob Davis.   Now we have artist Chad Hardin’s wonderful cover and can at last get this book out to all our anxious fans.”   Davis, as he always does with all Holmes titles at Airship 27, provided the black and white interior illustrations and book design.

Writer I.A. Watson has delivered an incredible adventure mystery that will keep readers up till the wee hours of the night.   “Homes & Houdini” is New Pulp fiction at its finest.
