Well, we’re here to help because I’ve drawn up a list, complete with handy links, of all the latest Moore & Reppion stuff you can order online right now. No need to thank me.
What would happen if you asked sixteen top writers who don’t normally write about Sherlock Holmes, to write about Sherlock Holmes? What if you wrote to them, saying:
In 19th century England, a new kind of hero—a consulting detective—blossomed in the mind of an underemployed doctor and ignited the world’s imagination. In the thirteen decades since A Study in Scarlet first appeared, countless variations on that theme have been played, from Mary Russell to Greg House, from ‘Basil of Baker Street’ to the new BBC Holmes-in-the-Internet-age.
Now, you don’t generally “do” Sherlock Holmes. Which is precisely why we’re writing, because we suspect that you have in the back of your mind a story that plays a variation on the Holmes theme.
All we ask is that you let the Holmes stories inspire you. You might want to write a straight Holmes pastiche, or a graphic story, or a tale about Mycroft or Mrs Hudson or Billy the page. The story may take place in Victorian Baker Street, or in Mughal India—or on the first manned flight to Mars. Perhaps the plot takes inspiration from a Conan Doyle tale? Or your detective suspects that his case is related to one Holmes faced? Or…
Why, you’d have: In the Company of Sherlock Holmes.
In the Company of Sherlock Holmes features The Problem of the Empty Slipper by Moore & Reppion, Chris Doherty, and Adam Cadwell.

Choose the leads you wish to pursue, interrogate your suspects and, from your deductions, name the guilty parties… and determine their fate wisely, as surprising consequences may arise where you least expect them.
Moore & Reppion wrote some of the mysteries for the game (the one set in the Roman Baths, and the one set in the Botanical Gardens, and others which we’re not sure if they have been included).

At the time of his death in 1937, American horror writer H.P. Lovecraft was virtually unknown. The power of his stories was too great to contain, however. As the decades slipped by, his dark visions laid down roots in the collective imagination of mankind, and they grew strong. Now Cthulhu is a name known to many and, deep under the seas, Lovecraft’s greatest creation becomes restless…
This volume brings together seventeen masterful tales of cosmic horror inspired by Lovecraft’s work. In his fiction, humanity is a tiny, accidental drop of light and life in the endless darkness of an uncaring universe – a darkness populated by vast, utterly alien horrors. Our continued survival relies upon our utter obscurity, something that every fresh scientific wonder threatens to shatter.
The dazzling stories in Cthulhu Lives! show the disastrous folly of our arrogance. We think ourselves the first masters of Earth, and the greatest, and we are very badly mistaken on both counts. Inside these covers, you’ll find a lovingly-curated collection of terrors and nightmares, of catastrophic encounters to wither the body and blight the soul. We humans are inquisitive beings, and there are far worse rewards for curiosity than mere death.
The truth is indeed out there – and it hungers.
John Reppion’s story On the Banks of the River Jordan features in the book.
