Further Associates of Sherlock Holmes

There's just over a week to go until George Mann's new short story anthology Further Associates of Sherlock Holmes is released but I've been fortunate enough to receive my contributor copy already.



You can pre-order your copy here.

Interesting, around this time last year I was in Cornwall, writing Sherlock Holmes and the Beast of Bodmin. I'm off to Cornwall again soon where I will be writing another short story for another new anthology.

Jonathan Green signing at The Yellow Book Bar in Brighton, this Sunday, 16th July!

Rather short notice, I know, but I am delighted to be able to inform you that I shall be at The Yellow Book Bar, Brighton, from 10:00am on Sunday, 16th July 2017.

I shall be selling and signing copies of my second Pax Britannia steampunk omnibus, as well as my steampunk-inspired ACE GamebooksAlice's Nightmare in Wonderland and The Wicked Wizard of Oz!

It's not often I get down to the south coast, so if you're in Brighton, do pop along and say hello, or even better buy a book and get it signed.

Maybe I'll see you there...

Sherlock Holmes and the Beast of Bodmin

Anyone who has read my Ulysses Quicksilver Pax Britannia novels, and has even a basic knowledge of the literary adventures of Sherlock Holmes, will know that the latter in some part informed the former.

Coming out this summer is my first published Sherlock Holmes short story. It's called Sherlock Holmes and the Beast of Bodmin, and appears in Titan Books' Further Associates of Sherlock Holmes, edited by m'colleague George Mann.

The premise behind the anthology is that each story is told by one of Holmes' associates, in my case Sir Henry Baskerville, the poor put upon subject of the murder plot in The Hound of the Baskervilles (which is one of only four Sherlock Holmes novels written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle).

The following is taken from the book and explains why I chose Sir Henry to be the narrator of my tale.


Further Associates of Sherlock Holmes is published at the end of August and you can pre-order your copy here.

New Book Day - The Wicked Wizard of Oz!

The Wicked Wizard of Oz is a portal to another world - the world of L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

In The Wicked Wizard of Oz you take on the role of the one of the protagonists of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and undertake a new and perilous quest as you find yourself called upon to save the world once more.

Hunted by the Wicked Witch of the West's winged monkeys and joined by her friends – the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Lion – Dorothy sets off for the Emerald City. Surrounded by enemies on all sides, will you uncover the secrets of The Wicked Wizard of Oz?

YOU decide which route to take, which perils to risk, and which of Oz’s strange denizens to fight. But be warned – whether you succeed in your quest or meet a dire end, somewhere over the rainbow, will be down to the choices YOU make.

Are you ready to return to Oz?


You can purchase your copy of The Wicked Wizard of Oz here.

And, coming soon...

International Sherlock Holmes Day

As well as being World Goth Day, and International Biodiversity Day, today is International Sherlock Holmes Day.

It must be clear to anyone who has read my Pax Britannia novels that Sherlock Holmes, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's works, have played their part in influencing the adventures of Ulysses Quicksilver. But it may surprise you to learn that, for all my work for other people's IPs, I have never written a Sherlock Holmes story. That is, until now.

Further Associates of Sherlock Holmes is the latest anthology of new Sherlock Holmes stories put together by George Mann for Titan Books. As well as my own, small contribution, the book includes stories by m'colleagues James Lovegrove, Sam Stone, and Andrew Lane.

The conceit that connects them all, is that they are all tales told by characters from the Sherlock Holmes canon, such as Inspector Lestrade, Mrs Hudson, and Professor Moriarty. Or, in my case, Sir Henry Baskerville...
